Life Along the Delaware Bay: Cape May, Gateway to a Million Shorebirds is a beautiful book. The main topics of the book are the birds that stop along the shores of the Delaware Bay in Cape May County, NJ, during their migratory travels. I would have liked the discussion about horseshoe crabs, whose eggs they depend upon to power up for the last leg of their journey, to have been more. Still, I am not disappointed because this is a beautiful and informative book.

Format: Hardcover
One of the most spectacular, as well as informative, bird books of my lifelong experience.

Larry Niles and Amanda Dey are world-renowned experts on the plight of the red knot, and associated shorebirds, such as ruddy turnstones.

Nobody writes more thoroughly and more effectively about natural life along New Jersey's three coastlines than Joanna Burger.

The photography is simply magnificent throughout.

With all my heart, I wish this book could effect a thorough moratorium on the gathering of horseshoe crabs, for their sake, as well as that of these winged creatures on the brink of extinction.

This is a wonderful book packed with useful information about the shore birds along the Delaware bay and the role Horseshoe crabs plays in their long and arduous journey. The photographs are nice and the text is lucid.
This book is highly recommended .
