Blackish Oystercatcher
Haematopus ater
The Blackish Oystercatcher (Haematopus ater) is a bird of the Pacific coast of South America, the Tierra del Fuego area and the Falkland Islands. It is extremely similar to the Black Oystercatcher of the northern hemisphere, but their ranges do not overlap. The shots here were digital captures in January, 2003, on Barren Island, Falklands. The shots were taken with a Canon D60 and EF 70-200 F/2.8 L IS lens and 2X extender.
