American Oystercatcher (Haematopus palliatus)

Here is an older photo taken with my old XTI, a pair of
American Oystercatcher probably the same birds I saw a couple of weeks ago during my trip to Puerto Penasco, this time I as not able to photograph them.. next time!


The American Oystercatcher is found on the Atlantic coast of North America from New England to northern Florida, where it is also found on the Gulf coast, and south to northern South America. It is found also in the Pacific coast of Mexico, Central America and northern South America. In the 1800s they became locally extinct in the northeast due to market hunting and egg collecting. After receiving protection under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, their range extended northward to re-occupy historical habitat in New England.

Hello Everton
Nice work, it's not easy to catch this bird. Great details, vivid colors and perfect focus.

hello Everton
marvellous duet, clarity and detail in big level, very good moment and beautiful capture

Hi Everton
Nice capture.
Great details and good clarity.

Well done, Everton. I like the subjects. But the informal balance established by the diagonal composition really makes this a stunner. Well done!

An excellent capture, Everton...
Very well framed, sharp and beautifully presented!

Hi Everton. A fine picture from your archives. The American Oystercatcher eye stands out along with its red bill. You have taken them with good detail and natural colours. Well done TFS.

Hi Everton,

A wonderful pair of Oystercatchers in perfect positions for a picture. Nice natural colors - I love the orange beak and eye circles. They look great in the natural setting.
