Follow up on Shorebirds feeding frenzy
Those shorebirds were really chowing down on whatever. I just couldn't let it go so I emailed Brad Winn our DNR Wildlife Resource Division senior biologist. He has been studying shorebirds on our coast. He had seen a few of these frenzy flocks of shorebirds recently. When he dug around to see what they were after it turned out to be polychaete worms. They must be tasty the way those birds were practically standing on their heads to get to them.
