Visiting Shorebirds

Lob here.Lob, the Delmarva Peninsula Fox Squirrel

Though I’ve spent a lot of my week as a Field Correspondent with The Squirrel Nutwork telling you about how my fellow endangered Delmarva Peninsula Fox Squirrels and I live out here, we aren’t the only animals on the refuge. Many birds visit us at Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge. Er, that’s what the land was originally set aside for.

From the beaches…

To the salt marshes…

They use the refuge to refuel and rest before continuing on their migration.
