SQUARES – Bright Beak

American Oystercatcher feeding for shellfish at the beach shore at Fort Desoto Park in Pinellas County, Florida near St. Petersburg.  The water was crystal clear that day.

I was going to share this on my A-Z Challenge for O, but it works well here and it is the 15th of the month. What is the significance for the 15th of the month? It is Clare’s Share Your Desktop Challenge. This is my desktop for this month. See the link below for the desktop challenge and join in. I turned it into a square for this challenge.

The American Oystercatcher is a strange looking bird to me but is one of the most recognized. With its bright orange beak and red and yellow eyes, they stand out on our beaches as they scour the sand for shellfish (clams, oysters and other saltwater molluscs) which is their exclusive diet.

    • Yes it is unique. The Black Oystercatcher along the Pacific coast from the Baja Peninsula to the islands off of Alaska. Just in case you ever get that way. They have a black body to ours with the white and black. 🙂 TMI?
