Pic of the Day

American Oystercatcher, Haematopus palliatus
Fort Desoto State Park; Saint Petersburg, Florida
     I shot so many Oystercatcher photos on my recent trip to Florida that I am just now getting through all of them.  I 
posted three a week ago (see March 7th Post), but I have so many. 
This bird was so cooperative it allowed me to get some great close ups.  I particularly like this one because of the surf in the background.  Because I have so many nice shots of this bird, I will post a few every now and then.  I just love this bird!  You will probably get tired of seeing oystercatchers, but please bear with an old mans obsession.
