Looking Back

Thursday, September 24, 2020,

This is a juvenile Oystercatcher looking back at me as I was photographing it at Point Lookout Beach. I don’t know that this will be the last juvenile Oystercatcher that I photograph this year, but these pics do make for a decent bookend for what has been a pretty good year for Oystercatchers here on Long Island. This particular bird was banded, as you can see in the photo below, so I hope that I can maybe photograph it next year or, at the very least, follow it’s exploits in the coming years. I wish you well, my young one, and I truly hope that our paths cross again.  JK.

    I hope you have a squirrel-like stash of oystercatcher pictures to sustain us in the off-season. 🙂

  2. There will be Winter Ducks for you to enjoy lady. And Chickadees and White-throated Sparrows as well. JK.

  3. YES! I love that picture! BEAUTIFUL!
    Stash some oystercatchers for the dark cold months — like Frederick the Mouse stores words and images. 🙂

  4. I might have some unused Oystercatcher photographs lurking in a kitchen drawer or maybe between the sofa cushions. 🙂 JK.

  5. Well, keep them safe for the middle of winter when it is bleak and we need some oystercatchers to boost our spirits. 🙂
