Walking the Plank

Ruddy Turnstones
Indian River Lagoon

A small flock of Turnstones and Sanderlings appeared this week along the Indian River Lagoon. These Ruddy Turnstones were "walking the plank" to a get to a sandy area  for alittle foraging. Watching them hunt for food is always entertaining as they wildly toss sand and turn stones with their odd shaped bills.


  1. Awesome, real nice job beautiful birds too..

  2. Super cool! Colorful birds and I love that with these sorts of shorebirds you're usually guaranteed to have some interesting backgrounds and such in the photo too.


I greatly appreciate your comments!
