It's the time of year when the fascinating Horseshoe Crabs arrive on the beaches of Delaware Bay to lay their eggs - a much needed feast for migrating shorebirds, some of which are traveling thousands of miles to their breeding grounds in the Arctic. This special phenomenon is one you won't want to miss, as Red Knots, Ruddy Turnstones, Sanderlings, Semipalmated Sandpipers, Willets, Laughing Gulls and more create a constantly moving mass of color and sound - truly a memorable birding experience!!! We'll visit a couple protected beaches to make the most of our viewing time.
These two Special Field Trips are timed to capture this event, so sign up for one or both at: CMBO Programs.
