Shorebirds: Avian Life on the Delmarva Coast (Online)

Shorebirds and Spartina field trip

This program takes place online on Tuesday, April 27.

Birds are among the most visible members of our local fauna; no matter what habitats are nearby, there are myriad bird species within easy reach. Among the most exciting habitats, we have access to are those along the Delaware Bayshore and the Atlantic Ocean, characterized by plant and animal life rarely experienced further inland. Join Mike Hudson as he delves into the shorebird and waterfowl species that utilize the Atlantic Flyway and the fascinating interrelationships between the native plants that support them.
