This is a juvenile Oystercatcher I photographed at Nickerson Beach about two months ago. As you can see, the coloration in its bill, not to mention its eye and eye ring, haven’t really kicked in. However, even at this age, an Oystercatcher is still a striking bird. JK

This is a juvenile Black-crowned Heron that I found at a freshwater pond adjacent to Nickerson Beach. I haven’t seen many of these guys this year, whereas I’ve been lucky enough to see a multitude of juvenile Yellow-crowns. It was a treat to find and photograph this youngster. JK.
