A Juvenile Black Oystercatcher

It's not often I see a Black Oystercatcher on the beach. Last year there were six that foraged together for limpets and clams. I was thrilled today to see eight, including this juvenile. Its eye and bill aren't yet completely orange, and it's still smaller than its parents. But it's already just as noisy with its piercing call.
