Oystercatchers At Rest
Photograph - Electronic Image
A couple of BLACK OYSTERCATCHERS are poised on a rock at Canon Beach Oregon.
Often found poking around rocky shorelines in the intertidal zone, Black Oystercatchers are a chatty, vivacious presence. Despite its name, this vermillion-beaked shorebird catches not oysters but mainly mussels and limpets for food. Black Oystercatchers nest just above the high-tide mark, on beaches and slopes in areas where prey is abundant. Outside of the breeding season, look for flocks of these unmistakable birds foraging on our coast.
