Bucktoe SHorebird Watch
We are still a few weeks away from the annual Bucktoe Creek Shorebird Migration Watch. This is an important time in the life of a shorebird as they migrate from their wintering grounds to arctic Canada. They'll make one stop to replenish themselves along the way at the DE Bay and then they'll make the trip north for the summer. Chester County happens to fall in line with migration, so this is a great chance to hang out and watch flocks of shorebirds as they fly through our skies. It will be taking place May 18th through June 7th so you have plenty of time to go out and check out the skies.
I found this cool shore bird a little off the beaten path already this year: The Black Necked Stilt. They don't spend their summers in Canada, but they are migrating north. Keep your eyes open because once again, you never know what you may happen to see throughout the peak of migration.
