Bird Pic Of The Week

American Oystercatcher

(Haematopus palliatus)

Where: Chincoteague, VA • Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge (NWR)

Notes: I often think about how many times a favorite photo was captured within the final moments of a trip. It's seems like there have been many instances when the final pass around the loop road or last few footsteps on a long hike, are when these exciting encounters happen. This image was also captured as a wonderful trip with good friends came to its close on Virginia's Eastern Shore. Despite the onset of rain that had held off all weekend, we made our final pass along the canals as we headed towards the beach that last morning before we hit the road. The overcast conditions supplied dim, but soft illumination to the exposed tidal flats. There close to the road, this Oystercatcher foraged for an easy meal. One last chance to take a shot or two, almost like a good-by present from the Great Powers of the universe. I've been told, "don't leave before the miracle happens." Perhaps I should listen. As if something is begging me to stay a bit longer. It could just be coincidence, if there is such a thing, but it often seems to happen this way.
