American Oystercatchers Digiscoped at South Beach on the Cape of Massachusetts

After testing out a Swarovski digiscoping* setup for the first time, I was able to put my newly learned skill to the test on the cape of Massachusetts at South Beach.

One of my first victims was a roving gang of American Oystercatchers. Needless to say, I was pretty happy with the results.

Two adults and a juvenile. If you look closely, one of the adults is banded “yellow #60”

This wasn’t the best shot, but the oystercatcher had been digging in his ear pretty fierce and seemed fairly happy about it

*Digiscoping is when you take a camera and connect it with a spotting scope to use as a super telephoto lens. I was using an angled HD scope with the Birdfreak Canon XTi DSLR.
