Travel & Taste: The Epic Journeys of Shore Birds

 ,   Add to calendar
 Dover-Sherborn  See map

Each year millions of shorebirds make an amazing round-trip journey between the Northern and Southern hemisphere. To complete their long final flight to the Arctic, red knots depend on horseshoe crab eggs in Delaware Bay, NJ. Meanwhile in MA, the cute and perky piping plover faces many challenges from beach traffic to predators as they breed on beaches in coastal communities. Finally, witness the semi-palmated sandpipers that gather in massive and dramatic numbers in New Brunswick Canada's Bay of Fundy before taking wing and flying 3000 thousand miles southward to South America. Join us as we follow the incredible journey of these shorebirds and the challenges they face during each of their monumental annual treks.
