Splish, Splash

In early January I headed out to see what I could find on the Dunedin causeway. I was hoping for another look at the black scoter in better light since I heard she was still around and it was a sunny morning. I couldn’t find her and heard that she was floating around on the other side of the bay. I did find an oystercatcher couple though.

Both of them were feeding when I first saw them. Then they both started taking baths.

It was fun watching them splashing around. They both eventually came out and started walking down the causeway. It would be great to see them with a baby this spring but I’m sure they nest on one of the spoil islands close by. Once all of the spring breaks start this causeway will be packed.

  1. It does look fun, watching these Oystercatchers. One of my favorite birds. Great series of photos. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Take care, have a happy weekend.

  2. Oystercatchers are really a treat to see. I like when there are big flocks and the red beaks really stand out.
