Black Turnstone

Black Turnstone, Arenaria melanocephala

The Black Turnstone is a common shorebird along North America's Pacific coast, breeding in the far coast of northern Alaska and wintering along the coast down to Mexico. It uses its wedge-like bill to turn over rocks and sea shells as it forages for food, feeding on insects and various marine organisms such as mussels and barnacles.
