Ruddy Turnstone portrait.

3 posts in this topic

Here is an image of late migrant ruddy turnstone taken in June in Duluth, Minnesota. This is one of my favorite spring migrant shorebirds due to the extravagent plumage. A turnstone can almost reliably be counted on at this location if there are gulls or terns resting/recreating at this breakwater at this time of year. The turnstones are the clean up crew. They will mull over whatever the gulls and terns leave behind including half eaten fish, and who knows what else that they find in excrement. They have adaptive bills that they do indeed use to "turn" things over in search of food. Techs: SonyA300, Tokina400mm, iso200, f10, cropped, USM.

Comments and critiques always welcome.

Regards,

Shawn Zierman.

Handsome bird with real nice setting, almost like he's a paid model.
