Description

The combination of weather and time finally intersected today. I was able to go on a kayak based bird survey looking for American Oystercatchers. I am probably going to post to many AMOY, but each one is different and several are banded. The bands were reported by my survey partner.

My camera gave me fits today so many are not up to the quality I usually post - so sorry about that.

We saw about 4 or 5 unbanded birds today and 6 banded birds - we did not like seeing birds without bands!

I helped band JL (the one standing on the left hand side a couple of years ago. She fledged a couple of chicks last year, but the horribly high tides this year probably prevented her from fledging this year. CK is a new partner for her.

Description from Wikipedia

The oystercatchers are a group of waders forming the family Haematopodidae, which has a single genus, Haematopus. They are found on coasts worldwide apart from the polar regions and some tropical regions of Africa and South East Asia. The exception to this is the Eurasian Oystercatcher and the South Island Oystercatcher, both of which breed inland, far inland in some cases. In the past there has been a great deal of confusion as to the species...
