That is just amazing. I would love to get close to an oyster-catcher. They are such interesting birds.
Thanks much Annie, they're a bit nervous but approachable using a slow crawl. I was luck with this pair, their chicks were just a day or two old and as long as I stayed back they were calm. One of the chicks came right over to me (within arm's reach) and stared at me me for a while. Then it went back to it's parents, that's when I was able to get this shot.

Maybe it's not fair of me to anthropomorphize, but I do like seeing devoted bird dads!
Me too, this dad was keeping a close eye on things but didn't get alarmed. I was very still and quiet.
