It uses its bill to first pry shellfish and other prey from the rocks, and then to chisel them apart to get at the soft inner contents. This Black Oystercatcher was photographed along the rocky shore in Monterey, California, USA. Photo taken with a Nikkor 300mm ED f4.5 lens on Kodachrome 64 film. (Date: November 1981)
