Shorebird Migration – Delaware Photographic Society 2017-10-24T19:47:19+00:00

Project Description

Spring is the best time to see shorebirds during their annual migration along the Delaware Bay. The sight of Semipalmated Sandpipers and endangered Red Knots feasting on nutrient-rich horseshoe crab eggs is one of constant motion and chaos.  The Sandpipers fly back and forth in undulating flocks, sometimes  catching the sunlight and then turning away. It is fascinating to watch but difficult to photograph with the constant motion.

Photos of shorebirds taken by members of the Delaware Photographic Society are currently on display in the Community Room. Please note: the Community Room is often used to show movies and host meetings. During these times, the photos are not available for viewing by visitors.
