Black Oystercatcher

Haematopus bachmani

Description:

A pair of them were sitting atop this large outcropping. They are somewhat common here, and I often see and hear them near the shore. They have a very distinctive and cute call.

Habitat:

On a large rock outcropping near the shore. You can see the Oystercatchers on the top left of the second photo
