Black Oystercatcher

During both mornings that I birded at Bandon the beach was experiencing low tide. This made it easier to get out among the rocks and see ocean birds. This Black Oystercatcher posed for me and another photographer while perched up on one of the many volcanic rocks that jut out of the sandy beach and ocean shore.
I love these birds. Their bright red-orange bill and eye-ring with yellow iris and fleshy colored legs with wrinkled joints, keeps me interested for hours.

    PS: is it just me??I have trouble signing in to post comments in this format.

  2. Not sure. Is it just my site or blogger in general?
