Black Turnstones Flock Prince William Sound Alaska

A flock of Black Turnstones in flight together after feeding in the waters of Prince William Sound in Alaska, USA.

A flock of Black Turnstones fly together over the Copper River near Prince William Sound in Alaska, USA where they feed amongst the seaweed beds. This bird is found along the coastal shores where they breed in western Alaska and then spend their winters along the coastline of the Pacific Coast of Southern Alaska all the way to Baja, California.

As this flock of Black Turnstones takes flight in Prince William Sound, you can see the two white wing markings on each bird and the white patch adorning their backs.

The numbers in Black Turnstones have been decreasing over the years due to the fact that they are at a risk to the oil spills and the limited breeding grounds in Alaska.
