The Ruddy Turnstone is one of two species of turnstone found in North America. Breeding in the Arctic tundra, they winter as far south as the southern tip of South America. Around New York City this common, distinctive shorebird can be seen on migration at most coastal locations. They can also be found in the Eastern Hemisphere where they are referred to as just the "Turnstone".
