Topic: Reed's Beach shorebirds

Pretty good numbers (maybe 5,000?) of shorebirds at Reed's Beach today, seeming to find plenty to eat (horseshoe crab eggs?) in the beached remnants of last year's marsh grasses and in the nearby sands.  The usual suspects: Red Knots, Ruddy Turnstones, Sanderlings, Dunlin, and Semipalmated Sandpipers.  New moon tomorrow brings spring tides and another wave of horseshoe crabs, and more shorebirds should be arriving daily for the next week or two.  Always wonderful to watch.
