Turnstones are distinctive medium-sized waders. Their build is stocky, with short, slightly upturned, wedge shaped bills. They are migratory and their strong necks and powerful, slightly upturned bills are adapted to their feeding technique; overturning stones, seaweed, and similar items in search of invertebrate prey.
