Cinnamon Teals at Tualatin River NWR in Oregon.

Usually, the cinnamons are pretty skittish but for some reason, they were hanging out close to the shore on this day.

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

Spent a few days around the 4th of July in the Sisters, Oregon area. Here are some photos of the fauna in the area. Hope you like them! All are with the 7D Mark II and either the 500/4 II or the 100-400 II lens.

1. House Wren at its nest:

Interesting comparison Sam between your Black Oystercatchers (Haematopus bachmani)) and our Sooty Oystercatchers (Haematopus fuliginosus).

Lovely shots, Graham!

Indeed, all the oystercatchers in the world belong to the same genus, Haematopus. Curiously, all the Pacific species, including the ones found off the West Coast of North America, as well as those found off Peru and your species in Australia are black, while the ones in the Atlantic Ocean, both off the Eastern Coast of North America and in Europe, as well as those off Argentina, are pied. However, there are two exceptions, the New Zealand species being pied, while the ones off the coast of South Africa being black. It is very interesting. Must be some kind of allopatric speciation, with some subsequent movement of populations.

Thanks Sam,

And further on the pied oystercatchers - Here we have the resident Australian Pied Oystercatcher (APO), and New Zealand has the South Island Pied Oystercatcher (SIPO).

A couple of years ago a pied oystercatcher was tagged with leg band band id 'N1' in a wader survey about half an hour from where I live in Victoria and mis-identifed as an APO by the survey participants.

Six months later that bird was seen again about 1000 miles away up on the Northern New South Wales Coast and was confirmed to be a SIPO by a more experienced birder.

This time last year the bird came back to Victoria - where I took the photo below, it then spent the summer back on the northern NSW coast asn is currently wintering back here - I saw it a few weeks ago but from a distance so no decent shots.

The SIPO has shorter legs and a longer thinner bill than the APO, as well as a larger area of white on the secondary wing feathers

As to how 'Sid' as this SIPO is affectionately known in the local birding community ended up this side of the ditch is still a matter of conjecture.

It's always great fun to spot these rarities, isn't it?
