O – Oystercatchers

Black Oystercatchers, to be exact, and the first ones I’d ever seen at Birch Bay. I took my brother birdwatching at Semiahmoo and otherwise meandering along country roads in the northern part of our state yesterday for his birthday. It was a perfect day!

    Cool, and especially because you see these mystery birds and you know what they are!

    • I had my brother the walking encyclopedia with me, but we also looked them up in our Sibley’s bird book, which is an excellent resource. Because of their big orange beaks, these guys were pretty easy to find in the book, too.
