Third Cable Beach Pied Oystercatcher nest to hatch

10,000 Birds

Since last week another Pied Oystercatcher nest on Cable Beach has produced two chicks. The header photo above shows where the family rested shortly after the two chicks left the nest on Tuesday. We had been patiently awaiting the arrival of the two chicks since the eggs were laid a month ago. I showed you this nest here at the bottom of the post. The Pied Oystercatcher pairs are approximately five kilometres apart on this section of Cable Beach.

Best Bird of the Weekend (First of August 2020)

10,000 Birds

Another month, another movement of the world’s birds from one point to the next. Learn to read the signs, and you’ll be able to tell the time of year just by which species cross your path… I had the chance to observe some interesting avian activity along the lakeshore this weekend, but the Eastern Bluebirds down in rural Pennsylvania were most distinctively colorful, which counts for a lot with me.
