A Black Oystercatcher Chick. This chick is following the orders cried out by its parents. If it doesn’t move it is very hard to see and appears to be nothing more than another rock! It’s sibling is performing the same act a short distance away. All the while the parents are calling out… loudly… with the female trying to draw attention away from the chicks. The photo was taken with a long lens and cropped heavily. We were soon gone. Black oystercatcher,Canada,Geotagged,Haematopus bachmani,Summer Click/tap to enlarge Promoted
