Here's an interesting bird sighting for this area. These shore birds are called Ruddy Turnstones and are usually sighted around Lake Ontario or Erie as they make their way to the high Arctic nesting areas. They winter in South America or Western Europe. Called "turnstones" because of their habit of flipping over small rocks with their beak in search of food. There have been a half dozen of them hanging out on the Gull Rock lately, probably waiting for the weather to improve on their journey north. I'm waiting to hear how rare a sighting this is.
