Ruddy Turnstone

I found this Ruddy Turnstone at the Edwin B. Forsythe NWR, Brigantine Division in Oceanville, NJ. It was in these dried grasses along the Wildlife Drive. They are usually found on rocky shorelines or beaches. This one was right above the rocky shoreline and did not seem to be bothered by our presence. Usually they run off if you get too close so this bird was being very cooperative for a while. Then it ran back in the rocks.
