Black Oystercatcher

I always enjoy seeing the Black Oystercatcher with its brightly colored thick red bill. Over the years I’ve taken plenty of photos of them along the Oregon Coast, but this is the first time I have gotten a photo of one with its catch. I don’t think it has an oyster, but it looks to be a mussel, which are quite numerous on the rocks. I took this photo yesterday on the beach at Seal Rocks during a morning walk with our visiting friends Kerry & Debbie with our dogs Max and Buster.
