2020—Black Oyster Catcher

Black Oyster Catchers live along the coastal waters of the Pacific Ocean from the Aleutians to Baja but until I saw my first one at a beach in Pacific Grove last September, I didn’t know about them. I’ve seen American Oyster Catchers on the Gulf in Texas. They have the same bright orange beak and orange eye ring but they are not solid black. This bird is quite distinctive as it searches the rocks for tidbits.
