Five Black Oystercatchers were nibbling on limpets at low tide this afternoon. Unfortunately a loose dog frightened them, so they squealed as they flew away.
Charadriiformes is a diverse order of small to medium-large birds. It includes about 350 species and has members in all parts of the world. Most Charadriiformes live near water and eat invertebrates or other small animals; however, some are pelagic (sea birds), some occupy deserts and a few are found in thick forest.
