Mantis Shrimp (Squilla empusa) The mantis shrimp is a crustacean with a flattened, segmented body and praying mantis-like claws. It burrows within muddy flats along the shoreline of the middle and lower Chesapeake Bay. Mantis shrimp eat live fish, crabs, worms and shrimp, including other mantis shrimp.

Hardened shoreline prevents erosion. Stone rip-rap installed by the property owners in an attempt to prevent shoreline erosion. Hardened edges along the Chesapeake Bay and its rivers reduces natural shoreline habitat that fish and other marine animals depend on for food and shelter. bulkhead,protection,stabilize,habitat,vegetation,amphibian,reptile,invertebrate,insect,wetland,marsh,river,tributary,Eastern Shore,Talbot County,Maryland

Pickeral rush (Pontederia cordata) occupies wetland shoreline. This emergent aquatic, with its leaves and flowers above water and portions of the stem under water, is found typically in shallow, quiet water. The seeds can be eaten like nuts and the young leaf-stalks cooked as greens. Deer also feed on these plants. The common name suggests that this plant, as well as the fish known as pickerel, occupy the same habitat. plant,marsh,wetland,native,bog,swamp,Maryland

Killdeer (Charadrius vociferus) nest in busy parking lot protect Found on golf courses or vacant gravell parking lots, this noisy plover is best known for its "broken wing" behavior. If a predator approaches, a nesting killdeer performs a conspicuous distraction display, dragging itself as if mortally wounded, often on one foot, its wings seemingly broken and its rusty tail fanned toward the intruder. This feigning of injury is effective in luring the predator away from the eggs or young, at which point the bird then "recovers" and flies off, calling loudly.
