Fiddlers, Birds, and the Saltmarsh Food Web

fiddlerThe Coastal Discovery Museum will present Robert Rommel on January 30 at 3 p.m. for this program. If you’ve walked near the saltmarshes of Hilton Head Island at low tide you may have seen armies of Fiddler Crabs marching across the pluff mud. This talk will examine fiddler crabs and the birds and other animals that feed on fiddlers. Join us to hear about the behavior of these critters and how they fit into the ecology and nutrient cycling of the saltmarsh.

Cost is $7 per person and reservations are erquired by calling (843) 689-6767 ext. 223. The Museum is located at 70 Honey Horn Dr. coastaldiscovery.org.
