Red Knot

Red knot bird

The red knot makes one of the longest migrations of any bird, traveling 15,000 miles from its breeding grounds in the Arctic to South America and back each year. An estimated 80% of migrating red knots use Mispillion Harbor in Delaware as a feeding and resting area during their annual migration, making this coastal habitat critical to the red knot’s survival. Given threats to coastal lands and declining populations, the red knot is recognized as a "Species of High Concern" by the U.S. Shorebird Conservation Plan. That's why when a mile of beachfront property went on the market in Mispillion Harbor, we agreed to help protect it.  Learn more >>
