Red Knot: A Shorebird's Incredible Journey (Book) - 11/19/2005 6:35:23 AM
Being both a nature lover and a bird watcher, this truly sounds like one fascinating bird, and book, Nancy; and I just ordered it through Amazon.com.

Red Knot: A Shorebird's Incredible Journey (Book) - 11/17/2005 8:14:39 AM
Imagine you weigh no more than two sticks of butter. Now imagine flying nonstop for five days and nights (with no food or rest) over the Atlantic Ocean, with no landmarks to guide you! Every year, Red Knots make several long distance flights on their 20,000-mile migration from the tip of South America to their Arctic Circle nesting grounds. Their most critical stop is in Delaware Bay, where they fatten up on horseshoe crab eggs before making the last flight to the Arctic. In the last decade, over-harvesting of horseshoe crabs for bait in conch and eel traps has caused the Red Knot population to plummet. In August, 2005, National Audubon and other wildlife organizations petitioned for emergency protection of Red Knots under the Endangered Species Act. Some scientists predict their extinction by the year 2010.
