Day of the Oystercatcher
(above photo - Oystercatcher habitat)
Their high piercing sound, which makes them easy to identify, can be heard at a distance of at least a 1/4 mile. The Oystercatchers were very active along the bluffs this warm, spring like morning.

Today, Black Oystercatchers dominated the scene. I wonder what tomorrow will bring.
