Barnegat Snowbird

Ruddy Turnstone - winter plumage

Arenaria interpres

 

We've been going to Barnegat Island for a few years now, and it's a place that is completely different in the winter and summer months. In the winter, you can expect to see harlequin ducks, long-tailed ducks, common and red-throated loons, dunlin, eiders, purple sandpipers and these interesting birds almost every time you visit. And yet, we never get tired of going there - yet another example of the draw of a place.
