Feathers on Friday

American Oystercatcher

Happy Friday! Here is a shot of warmer weather for you on this cold day in upstate NY.  If you are on the coast of the Eastern United States or on the coast in the southern part of the Western United States, There is a good chance you will see this colorful bird foraging for oysters, mussels, and clams.  It's long, bright orange bill is well designed for eating shellfish that makes up almost all of their diet.  I saw this one on our recent trip to Florida.

Happy Friday and Happy Birding!  Don't forget to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.  Stay tuned for another Which is Which? coming soon!
