This little bird is a first sighting for me. I think it’s a Black Turnstone which is in the Sandpiper family.
This one and several others were feeding on the rocks near the shore while some Oyster Catchers were preening or trying to nap.
I always try to focus in on a small detail here and there while out shooting and yesterday the fallen feathers laying on the sand caught my eye~
It was a great morning to be on the coast birding.
More to come…
