SCWF had a wonderful event at Harbor Island on April 29 & 30, 2018 to observe and learn about Horseshoe Crabs & their spawning cycles, and the shorebirds that depend on the Horseshoe Crabs! HUGE THANK YOU to Dr. Al Segars (retired veterinarian & wildlife biologist with South Carolina Department of Natural Resources) and Nick Wallover (veteran shorebird biologist with SCDNR) for sharing their expertise with our group!
A note from Ben Gregg about the Sunday evening portion of the class: "We had a four-ring circus about 7:45. Sun setting in the West, moon rising in the east, hundreds of red knots grouped on a sand bar for the night and Al Segars tagging and measuring horseshoe crabs with assistance from his followers!"
Here's a slow-motion video of the Red Knots flying over our group Monday morning...video taken by Dennis Sellers.
