The Delaware Bay is a major migratory stop along the Atlantic Flyway for shorebirds, such as the endangered Red Knot. These birds stop each spring at beaches along the Bay to rest and refuel on horseshoe crab eggs en route to northern breeding grounds.
The annual World Series of Birding is coming up very soon on Saturday, May 9. The day-long event is organized into teams that have up to 24 hours to count as many bird species as they can identify by sight or sound within the state of New Jersey.
