Ruddy Turnstone

This beautiful Ruddy Turnstone (Arenaria interpres) was one of several feeding at Stratford Point this morning along with a small group of Semipalmated Sandpipers. Migrant shorebirds are still moving north through the state, and it is hard to believe that in two months we will have many flying south!

Please keep sharing any Connecticut eBird checklists with shorebirds, terns or long-legged waders with us at ctwaterbirds@gmail.com, thanks!
