No Stone Left Unturned

Walking along the shore of Cocoa Beach, I see a bird foraging in the wake of the waves washing up on the sandy beach. It is the beautiful ruddy turnstone. In the shallow wake water it flips shells, small pebbles and natural debris to find mollusks, worms and other invertebrates. Although you can find this bird here in Florida, it does not nest here; it nests in the arctic tundra of North America. As I approach the turnstone, it flies further down the beach. I walk up away from the breaking waves so I do not disturb this beautiful bird.
