An American Oystercatcher Times Two
With their bright orange/red bills and matching eyes, along with their dull pink legs, I easily caught sight of two American Oystercatchers foraging around the Murrell’s Inlet salt marsh for a snack.
American Oystercatchers feed almost exclusively on shellfish and other marine invertebrates including mussels and clams of many varieties, limpets, oysters, sea urchins, starfish, crabs, and worms.
The pair finally got close enough to each other for me to get both in one frame. Yay!
