Black Turnstone I
Arenaria melanocephala

Both birds seemed to be aware of me laying in the seaweed between a couple of logs, but this one seemed less concerned and was more willing to approach me. It was probably around 20 feet away from me when this picture was taken.

Location: Sitka National Historical Park, Sitka, Alaska
