Oystercatcher in Flight
Tried to make a trip to Bolivar Flats yesterday but couldn’t get there as it looked like I might get my car stuck in the sand with all of the rain that the Houston area had last week. Ended up heading to the Texas City dike in search of the elusive American Oystercatcher. Found him in the usual spot and got this shot as he flew off.
