Black Oystercatchers are large-sized shorebirds that are found on the west coast of North America. They are all black, with bright orange-red bills and orange-pink legs.
Black Oystercatchers feed on marine invertebrates like mussels and limpets. They will also feed on larger prey like crabs. In other words, they don't necessarily specialize in just oysters!
