American Oystercatcher (Haematopus palliatus)

Galapagos, June 11, 2019

We saw many other species of oystercatchers before spotting our first American one in Sandy Hook, NJ on April 30, 2016.

Since then we've seen them closer to home in Westchester, while travelling in Texas, and numerous times in the Galapagos.
