Surfbirds and Turnstones

August 21

Significant numbers of both at Ballona yesterday as they’re finally arriving from Alaska heading south to winter. Most will likely continue on to their wintering grounds in Mexico and South America but some of the Turnstone’s and maybe a Surfbird or two will stay the entire winter at Ballona.

One of the Ruddy Turnstones was banded but barely legible when I blow-up the picture. I’m going to send it to the various banding agencies and will post an update here if I find out where and when it was banded.
