Staten Island Oystercatchers
Oystercatchers in Brooklyn and Queens
I've seen American oystercatchers (Haematopus palliatus) at Marine Park (May 30, 2017) and Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge (June 1, 2017). I was able to take a few photos and add a Filming the Feathers video. I didn't get to see them cracking open oyster shells, but I hope to soon!
