Ruddy Winter Turnstone

Ruddy turnstone in winter plumage.

This afternoon, while frolicking on the beach at Cape Canaveral National Seashore with daughter Phoebe, I snapped off a few shots of the foraging ruddy turnstones. None of them was in breeding plumage, but then—I forget myself—it's January! They SHOULD be in winter plumage.

Not a whole lot of bird photography on this trip, at least not yet. Though, Phoebe got some nice shots for me of a loggerhead shrike at Viera. Here's one of them:

Cool! You are here in my stomping grounds. Wish I still have the whip-poor-will hanging out in my yard this week.

Couldn't help but think this was an angry post, "ruddy" being a mild swear word in the house I grew up in. As in "Ruddy Winter Turnstones! Where's their ruddy breeding plumage?"
