  1. The juvie Oystercatcher is so cute, great sighting!

  2. Splendid little bird - the adults are good as well!

  3. Flotte bilder. Tjelden har søte unger. De er brune før de får sin "voksne" farge!
    Ha en fin dag!

  4. Great shots!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

  5. Hej!
    Ja, de är verkligen speciella strandskatorna. Tänk så länge det dröjer innan de kommer igen... snyft.
    Fina bilder.
    ha en fin kväll

  6. Just a shade different than our American oystercatchers but oh so similar.

    Thanks for linking up at the Bird D'Pot this weekend. AND...yes, I did redo the template and header on the meme's page. Thanks for noticing.

  7. Good eye finding that juvie Oystercatcher!
