And thus this illustrates the dangers of living in Brooklyn. The booze and the all night parties...

The Oystercatchers are part of "Community Watch," and are saying; "we don't want your kind around here corrupting imnpressionable Willets...

I actually laughed at this shot, it's a great catch, Its almost as if the oyster catchers are saying "hey you sure you hatched the right egg honey?":-)

I've never seen them eat oysters either. :lol:

My book states that they hammer open mussels and pry open clams, but I've never seen them do that. What I have seen, is one hell of a lot of eating of marine worms, some of them really, really big. And I watch them a lot! I love these birds.

And thanks alady forty, but I'll stick with my caption. It's more appropriate to New york...
