Here come the horseshoe crabs! Each spring, millions of horseshoe crabs lurch onto the shores of Delaware Bay. In the moist sand they mate and lay their eggs.
Here come the birds! Drawn by the horseshoe crab eggs, thousands of migrating shorebirds descend upon the bay. They are exhausted and very, very hungry.
Here come the people! Curious about the commotion, people arrive from all over the globe. For a few short weeks, they are part of one of the most extraordinary events in the animal world.
