The American Oystercatchers I featured in yesterday’s post, American Oystercatchers Flying In, landed fairly close to me but back lit by the just risen sun. I continued down the beach past them, then turned back to see what they were up to.
They were strutting around in the low surf. True to their name, they mostly eat oysters or will probe for other food.
There was no oyster bed here and these two didn’t seem interested in hunting. They soon took off.
