Black Turnstone at Henderson Bird Viewing Preserve in Clark County, Nevada 8/22/2015 UPDATED 8/27/2015

Brandon Miller, Jess Burton and I found this Black Turnstone at Henderson Bird Viewing Preserve in Clark County, Nevada this morning.

The bird was first spotted across a pond. As we approached, another bird flushed it and the BLTU flew towards us and landed close by. It walked along the edge of the pond, turning stones, and walked right by us giving a great view!
If you chase this bird, it was in the east corner of the northernmost pond. Good luck and good birding!

 

UPDATE:

Here are more pictures from that day as well as more pictures from 8/25/2015 when I revisited the HBVP and relocated the BLTU in the same location, roughly. Notably, the turnstone was much more active and more skittish than a few days ago when we first found it. Eating well?
