About 12,000 Red Knots were feeding on Horseshoe Crab eggs today along the Delaware Bay. This one was actually feeding inside a dead Horseshoe Crab when a wave blasted some Delaware Bay mud into the air. Along with the Red Knots some 15,000 Rudy Turnstones and thousands of Semi-palmated Sandpipers, Willits and assorted shorebirds and gulls turned out for the protein feeding frenzy.
