Once again the workshop trip is scheduled to coincide with the spawning of the horseshoe crabs on the Georgia Coast. You don't have to travel to Delaware Bay to witness this phenomenon that brings in hundreds of migrating shorebirds including Red Knot, Semipalmated Sandpipers, Short-billed Dowitchers, Marbled Godwits, Ruddy Turnstones, and more...all in breeding plumage!
