Each year in the middle of a long migration, millions of shorebirds converge on the mudflats of the Bay of Fundy. They stop to fatten up and rest for their journey to wintering grounds in South America. Massive flocks of semipalmated sandpipers swarm over the bay and in doing so display unbelievable agility, and speed. This short documentary explores Mary’s Point and Johnsons Mills through the lens of this truly amazing migration.
