Then, glancing back toward the dunes, I spied something small that almost blended with the sand.
It was Chick #1!
|American Oystercatcher Chick #1|
parent bird had been standing.
|American Oystercatcher Chick#2|
Soon this bird too returned to the dunes. I also saw a second adult join the first and follow the chicks
into the dunes. Later, 3 crows flew over and both adults took to the sky, aggressively calling and bothering the crows to make sure they left the area.
