Ruddy Turnstone - PEI

I don't see much for shorebirds in the county that I live in New Brunswick. When its time to vacation over on Prince Edward Island however, I usually have a couple of opportunities to see some different one's.
We just returned from our second visit of the summer and unfortunately, the sun wasn't out very much. My 3 and 5 year old still wanted to go to the beach though so we drove a few minutes down the road to Canoe Cove. We didn't stay long because it was just too windy and cloudy, but I was pleased to see two Ruddy Turnstones. I have yet to see this species in NB so it was great to observe them for a few minutes yesterday afternoon.
