Shorebirds are avian superstars with Herculean migrations, unique feeding adaptations, and elaborate courtship displays. This online presentation will enrich your appreciation of these incredible birds, as we discuss several species that are currently passing through on both ends of migration, or settling in seasonally for nesting. Learn their unique and specialized features which support their ability to thrive in distinct but interconnected coastal/wetland environments. Once decimated by market hunting, shorebirds have shown remarkable resiliency as they populate ever decreasing habitats. Presently, they provide important metrics in our understanding of the effects of climate change and sea level rise. After this presentation, you'll know where and when to observe shorebirds, and tips on visual and vocal identifications.
