Black Oystercatchers at Stanley Park in Vancouver


Black Oystercatcher / Huîtrier de Bachman / Haematopus bachmani: The lighting is far from ideal, but the series of shots this photo was taken from remains the best I have taken so far of these showy birds.

Taken from the southern portion of the Seawall at Vancouver’s Stanley Park, between Second and Third Beaches, with a handheld Nikon D5200 and AF-S Zoom-Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED (ISO 900, 300mm, f/5.6, 1/500). Not baited, called in or set up.
