American Oystercatcher

American oystercatchers sift through the sand and poke their beaks into small nooks in the lava pools. Generally they eat shellfish; with their sturdy beaks they can pry open an oyster, clam or mussel and snip the mussel that holds the shell closed. They stick to the rocky shores, sandy beaches and coastal lagoons.
