Nice story.  I have never found other shorebirds to care much for crumbs. 
Turnstones love bread crumbs.  We used to feed them on the Bay-bridge tunnel 
(Del/Va) in winter back when it was legal to stop and bird there.  I always 
wondered if it was a poor diet for them, but if this pair has eaten bread 
for 6 years, it can't be too bad.
