If you know what it is please let me know. I've seen Sand Pipers and Killdeer on the beach but I don't think I've seen this one before.

It takes its beak and jams it into the small mussels, forces them open, and takes the inside for a snack.

Ruddy turnstone (on this side of the Atlantic we just call them turnstones). They are real scavengers of the shore.
Nice action portrait BTW :smile:

Thanks for the ID.

This one was found in South Eastern Wisconsin along the shores of Lake Michigan (one of the Great Lakes).
