OK, since it’s the summer doldrums and we have nothing better to do anyway, let’s have some fun with the Oystercatcher found this morning by John Dumlao and then subsequently photographed by a few folks. The bird was originally found at 6:23-ish at the Point La Jolla Seawatch spot, standing on the rocks below. It flew south past Children’s pool and landed about a 1/3 mile south of there out on a point where it stuck around for 30 minutes until a guy and his dogs went out on the rocky point and chased it off. It flew south but then returned to the flat rocks below the cliffs, again about 1/3 mile south of Children’s.
I don’t know if Mandy Etpison’s photos attached below will come through (this group email system tends to strip them) but they are spectacular. If they get stripped I’ll see if I can get and post a link to them.
I’m not an experienced at rating American Oystercatchers, so I’ll only weigh in with my two cents in a follow-up email.
