Shorebirds, eagles, horseshoe crabs and more….

May is a great time to visit the Delaware Bay beaches. The horseshoe crabs are spawning and shorebirds are feeding on the eggs. Please respect the beach closures, so that the shorebirds can feed undisturbed.

    Was the eagle eating horseshoe crab eggs or Red Knots and Ruddy Turnstones?

    Neither, all peacefully co-existing. Eagles often sit out on the sand bars on the Delaware Bay.
