El vuelvepiedras común o vuelvepiedras rojizo es una especie de ave caradriforme de la familia Scolopacidae.

Mide de 21 a 25 centímetros de largo, pesa unos 110 gramos, y tiene una envergadura de 43 a 49 cm.

Su coloración varía con las estaciones. Durante el invierno su cabeza es café claro. Su zona dorsales es marrón oscuro, gris y negro, y la ventral es blanca, con la garganta y pecho negros.

En su época reproductiva los machos tienen la cabeza y cuello cubiertos con un llamativo diseño blanco y negro, con la zona dorsal roja.

La especie es completamente migratoria. De hábitos solitarios, se asocia en grupos pequeños, que pueden incluir individuos de otras especies, como el chorlitejo bicinchado (Charadrius bicinctus), aunque son gregarios al migrar y alimentarse, juntándose en grupos de hasta 100 individuos.

Da vuelta las piedras, tablas, y otros obstáculos que encuentra, mientras busca los invertebrados de los que se alimenta, acción que le valió su nombre común. También se alimenta de carroña y pescado en descomposición.

finding that tasty morsel between stones and living up to its name. there always so fascinating to watch, their behaviour and there noises they make.

One of the prettiest birds we have on the Pacific Coast.

El vuelvepiedras común es una limícola nidificante en las altas latitudes del Holártico que, en nuestro país, aparece durante los pasos migratorios y a lo largo de la invernada, sobre todo en determinadas localidades de las costas atlánticas y cantábricas, donde explota los pequeños invertebrados que pululan por las playas cubiertas de guijarros y algas, los espigones, los rompeolas y los corrales de piedra para la cría de moluscos.

Se alimenta principalmente de insectos, si bien cuando estos escasean puede ingerir materia vegetal y otros invertebrados, como arañas, crustáceos y moluscos.

Esta limícola de pequeño tamaño y aspecto compacto se caracteriza por tener las patas naranjas, un abigarrado plumaje y un pico corto en forma de cuña, que utiliza para voltear pequeñas piedras.

We had some extremely high tides earlier this week making beach access somewhat limited. It did, however, make many of the shorebirds in the area pretty easy to find since there wasn’t a whole lot of beach for them to use. This Ruddy Turnstone came right up to our car giving us some nice looks.

Thanks for the faves, comments and visits.

Just back from a short trip to St. Augustine, Florida, the oldest city in the U.S. We spent lots of time taking in the shore birds. It was lots of fun! Lots of species that I don't see in central FL. This Turnstone was quite busy "turning over stones" in search of its next meal. I really love the coloring.

The ruddy turnstone is a small wading bird, one of two species of turnstone in the genus Arenaria. The scientific name is from Latin. The genus name arenaria derives from arenarius, "inhabiting sand, from arena, "sand". The specific interpres means "messenger"; when visiting Gotland in 1741, Linnaeus thought that the Swedish word Tolk "interpreter" applied to this species, but in the local dialect the word means "legs" and is used for the redshank.

It is now classified in the sandpiper family Scolopacidae but was formerly sometimes placed in the plover family Charadriidae. It is a highly migratory bird, breeding in northern parts of Eurasia and North America and flying south to winter on coastlines almost worldwide. It is the only species of turnstone in much of its range and is often known simply as turnstone.

Zarapito trinador & vuelvepiedras

L'arenaria di Petra è una roccia sedimentaria prodotta dalla sedimentazione e dall'accumulo di piccoli granelli di sabbia. Il risultato di questo processo è una roccia coerente e resistente, ma al contempo facile da scavare, organizzata in strati o bancate. Una caratteristica particolare di queste arenarie è la variazione del colore, con sfumature dal giallo ocra al rosso fuoco al bianco, dovute alla diversa concentrazione degli ossidi durante il lungo processo di consolidamento (wikipedia)

翻石鷸 Ruddy Turnstone 【學名:Arenaria interpres 】鸻形目 / 鷸科;俗名:鶇鷸、猿濱鷸、京女鷸、京條鷸。此為雄鳥繁殖羽,在台灣屬冬候鳥,體型看起來圓滾滾的,很可愛,喜歡棲息在潮間帶、河口沼澤或是礁石海岸等濕地環境。以藏身其下的沙蠶、螃蟹等小動物爲食,聽其名就得知其習性。有時會單獨行動或成群,這隻翻石鷸得感謝眼尖的炫哥帶領我們去拍,一大早能拍到這小傢伙,我真的蠻開心的,可惜是牠離我們較遠,只好上兩倍鏡下去拍攝,這張是沒裁切的,就大概知道多遠了!牠一個人孤伶伶地站在岸邊,安靜地享受海浪拍打的聲音,或許這也是鳥兒放鬆的一種享受吧?當我們回頭時,早已不見身影。期待以後能拍到一整群的。

This Yellowjacket nest in the Aspens is now vacated of it's inhabitants. It was then that I noticed the Aspen leaf "imbedded" in the nest.

 

Here is the view of the back of the nest www.flickr.com/photos/124964990@N03/15217191510/

 

Because this was photographed in the mountains of Idaho, and the nest is 6ft up in the Aspens, and the relative non-aggressiveness of it's residents, www.flickr.com/photos/124964990@N03/15400478441/ I believe this is an Aerial Yellowjacket (Dolichovespula arenaria) nest. I could be wrong though.

 

This superb breeding plumaged bird appeared at Coate yesterday, but this evening was the first chance I had to go see it. It was a race against fading light but this very accommodating individual performed admirably for me - even giving a quick fly past when harried by the local wildfowl!

Ruddy Turnstones in non breeding plumage

Arenaria interpres

While most waders like soft ground, chiefly mud or sand, the Turnstone is equally at home on rocks, although sandy beaches with a tangle of seaweed, shells and small stones at the high tide mark are ideal for it, being rich in small invertebrates.

 

Many thanks to all who take the time to view, comment or fav my images

Another new bird for me, one of the reasons I visited Ballina.

 

Best viewed large.
