As we were walking along the beach we stumbled, almost literally, across this feeding flyer. I think you can tell he's pretty small if you look at the size of shells against him.
As is typical of many of the birds I came across in Florida, I was clueless as to his name. I thought he looked a lot like a killdeer so I was assuming he was in the plover family.
Well I finally put an identity to him. He's a Ruddy Turnstone, aka Rock Plover. According to my bird book they can be very tolerant of humans when feeding and that was the case here.
I was astonished at how close I was allowed to get!
