Black Turnstone
Arenaria melanocephala

A fair number of black turnstones were feeding along the beach at the park. The high tide compressed the beach so that it was relatively easy for me to hide behind logs and get close enough to the birds to get a decent picture.

Location: Sitka National Historical Park, Sitka, Alaska
