Cape May: Shorebirds Galore @ Cook's Beach

It's hard to comprehend the thousands of Red Knots and Semipalmated Sandpipers feeding on Horseshoe Crab eggs at Cook's Beach and shoreline to the north, but worth a visit in mid- to late May.

Two patches of shoreline to the north were wall-to-wall Red Knots. Tons of other birds as well -- terns, Ruddy Turnstones, Sanderlings, Spotted Sandpipers and gulls.
