Ruddy Turnstone
« on: October 11, 2012, 11:21:04 AM »

I took this image last year up in Churchill as these guys were migrating through. There were some pretty steady north winds and the migrants were all stacking up in Churchill. I noticed that these birds were hanging around one particular area quite a bit and upon investigating saw that there had been some grain spilled on the railway tracks that they were all gobbling up. Perfect! I created a little mound of moss...plunked it in the grain pile...got down on my belly and...here you have it  :D

Nice image. Love these guys. We get them along the Southern USA coast in the winter. They are generally very tame and will walk around under our feet on the beach and rock jetties as we scope for other birds.
