Glad you figured it out. I'm not the expert in birds that some people are.

Yes, they are Ruddy Turnstones (cheated and asked my friends at Cornell-my go-to people when I want a quick answer about birds).

Actually, these are Ruddy Turnstones...according to All About Birds: A stocky, brightly patterned shorebird, the Ruddy Turnstone can be seen actively pecking, probing, and flipping over stones alony rocky shores. And they eat aquatic invertebrates and insects. Also carrion, garbage, and bird's eggs.

They may be semi-palmated plovers, which are first cousins to killdeer, though yours look more brightly colored and less well defined in their markings. They are found in your area according to my book, and like a beach habitat. See what you think.

They're not oystercatchers, I'll have to look but I think they may be Kildee (sp?)

And what kind of birds are these? I tried Googling images for oyster catchers, but they didn't look like these. Beautiful shot, love the rich colors!
