American Oystercatchers (Fam.)

During the breeding season, the American oystercatcher can be found in coastal habitats including sand or shell beaches, dunes, salt marshes, marsh islands, mudflats, and dredge spoil islands made of sand or gravel. During migration and winter, they are found feeding in mud or salt flats that are exposed by the tide. They are also found on shellfish beaches at this time.

    • They are, I remember walking along the beach and the male kept distracting me away from the nest; he used all the tricks in the book to get me to walk away. I figured there was a nest somewhere. I moved away and then I saw him go to the nest. Then I shot with a zoom lens. The whole family, together.
      Thanks, D. 🙂
