"Crash: A Tale of Two Species" 
 The film is about the interdependency of the Red Knot Bird and the Horseshoe Crab.  In the Spring when the Delaware Bay waters warm and the Horseshoe Crabs spawn,  Shore Birds come to the beaches of the Delaware Bay to feed upon the nutrient rich eggs of the Horseshoe Crab.  Some of the many species that fly thru the area have traveled thousands of miles from their winter residences and stop here, one of four major "refueling stations" in the world.  This is why it is such an attraction to avid birders.  As well they get to view a truly Prehistoric animal's relative.
