Banded American Oystercatcher

Thanks to Birdchick who posted about a banded American Oystercatcher, we reported one that we found at South Beach, Massachusetts.

The American Oystercatcher or AMOY Banding project is a fascinating project focused on these fun shorebirds. Shortly after submitting our band, we received confirmation about the bird.

Yogi was banded at South Beach this year as an adult. It will be fun to hear if he or she is found feeding somewhere way south.
