Great photos and it looks like a Pied Oystercatcher to me - although slightly different markings from the ones we have here in Australia.
Great shots again....your photo's a very good.greetings, Joop
My current favourite bird to see.Beautiful images.
Beautiful bird--the white on the wings and tail are striking. Great shots. Mickie :)
He's beautiful. Looks a little like the Oystercatchers I've seen, but not quite. Hope you get an answer.
GOURGEOUS PICTURES! What a BEAUTY!The more I watch your blog, the more I like it.The scientific name of this beauty is Haematopus ostralegus. We call it "Ostrero euroasíatico" in Spanish language. In English, I think it is called "Eurasian Oystercatcher". Well, your australian friend will know its English name better than me.Warmest greetings from Spain.
Good photos!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.
Great shots of the oystercatcher. They are cool looking birds.
Lovely photos - I like the first shot especially. You are also very good at capturing birds in flight, something I cannot do at all.
ITS a real beauty..definately an oyster catcher but now sure which one exactly...
Buena serie del ostrero
Jättefina bilder, speciellt gillar jag den andra där den ligger i vassen/gräset, med så härliga färger. Jag tycker det ser ut som en strandskata, Tjeld heter det visst på norska. Jag har aldrig sett den i verkligheten, men på bild :) Ha en bra dag!
Хорошие фотографии! Я не видела ещё такой птицы, мне нравится её вид!
Hi there - I agree with Charrancito its and oystercatcher - I think they are called Tjeld in Norwegian!Cheers – Stewart M – Australia
They say, the birds evolved from dinosaurs in early JURI, about 180 million years ago.... ...and today there are among us to admire them Beautiful series
Beautiful birds. I've been watching a pair of these raise a young one, at my local lake.
Fascinating bird! Great shots! I love the red eyes. Our "American Oystercatcher" look very similar.
Wonderful capture! The color in these photos is rich. Your oystercatcher is almost cartoonish with that bright bill and intense eyes! Excellent work!
Wonderful captures of the Oystercatcher!
Lovely photos of the oystercatcher
Great captures! It is a beautiful bird!
Great pictures! ha en fin uke:)
I have no clue about the name, but the bird surely is a beauty :)
Dette var en staselig kar du! Flotte bilder!
Awesome shots, especially that first one of the Oystercatcher on the rock!
What a beautiful bird - love that orange bill.
