Ruddy Turnstone

Allaboutbirds.org says

“A stocky, brightly patterned shorebird, the Ruddy Turnstone can be seen actively pecking, probing, and flipping over stones along rocky shores.”

So the Ruddy Turnstone is called that because it is reddish and it turns over stones.  That’s like calling a sheep a “Furry Eatgrass”.  Anyway,  there were half a dozen of these little guys making their way along the beach on Lido Key yesterday and I enjoyed taking their photos.
