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 species that are currently passing through on both ends of migration. 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.
