Welcome to the American Birding Association’s Bird of the Year page!

This year they’ve selected the Ruddy Turnstone as their 2017 bird of the year. This year’s selection took into account the option for birders to actually be able to see the bird in the wild. As a shorebird, it is likely that birders might run across the Ruddy Turnstone in their adventures.

When you arrive at the site you’ll find images, information, and fun facts about the bird. In addition to all that you’ll also find information about its name and links to its bird calls.
