American Oystercatchers

Oystercatchers are on my list of favorite shorebirds.  I find I really like the combination of black, white and orange/pink found in oystercatchers, skimmers and stilts.  I find myself lingering at a site if any these birds are present.  These oystercatchers were found recently on a sandy quiet-water beach and mud flat shortly after sunrise.
