A bird, a crab, and a struggle to survive

As always, humankind’s reluctance to even understand the web of life is at play in the biological connectivity described in this article. The bird is the red knot, a shorebird, and the crab is the horseshoe crab. The place is Delaware Bay. Monica and I had the good fortune to see red knots on several occasions, usually on the beaches at Cape May Point, N.J. Anyone who doesn’t even strive to understand (comprehend?) the web between red knots and the rest of marine life has got to be a cold-hearted SOB. IMO.
