Oystercatcher

We had a very productive ‘birding’ visit to the coast this weekend and saw many migratory bird species. I think the birds were as surprised as us that Texas has been so cold so early this year!

That is an American Oystercatcher. You don’t normally see these birds in Texas, so sighting this bird was a rare treat for my family and I. For my son (the bird expert) this made the 109th bird species sighted this year!
