Black Oystercatcher ~ Most of the Black Oystercatchers I saw this week in the Morro Bay area were off in the distance. I was happy to see this one right by the shore where I was shooting the Sea Otters. His orange bill was discolored from digging around in the mud for yummy treats left as the tide went out.
