Ruddy Turnstone range

The Ruddy Turnstone is a shorebird found on both coast of North America during the migration periods. It is a hardy bird, that nest in the arctic regions of the Arctic Ocean. This is a interesting bird to watch as it feeds, for it actually does move and turn rocks over looking for insects hiding beneath them. This turnstone spends its winter months in the warmer tropical countries.
