Confirm Ruddy Turnstone

Recommended Posts

Seen September 5, 2019. Is this a Ruddy Turnstone or something else? 

Delaware Seashore in Sussex County, Delaware.

Yes, I would call this a nonbreeding adult/juvenile Ruddy Turnstone. You can just make out the stout bill, brown upperparts, white underparts, and distinctive white shoulder patch.

Thank you so much! I know the pictures were appalling, as was the lighting at the time (stormy and at dusk), and I don’t like to use flash when taking pictures of wild animals. So props to you for being able to make all of that out! 🙂
