6"x6" oil on board. Shore birds are my new fascination to paint. Beach walks with camera in hand.
The oyster catcher is found only in the marine shoreline environment favoring rocky over sandy areas. It eats most every kind of shell fish favoring muscles but it doesn't eat oysters!! It mates for life and their nests are made from shell fragments and small stones. Nest building is done by the male. SOLD!

Hey, I actually saw a pair of these at the Ranch Beach.
I stood with the binoculars and watched them poke around the rocks until my arms ached. I love your interpretation!
