American Oystercatcher Facts | Baja Wildlife Guide
Oystercatchers in Baja construct their shallow, shell-lined nests on the grounds of pebbly, sandy beaches or the edges of salt marshes. Pairs usually nest in the same area year after year. The typical clutch consists of between two and four eggs, which are speckled with brown.
The oystercatcher feeds primarily on coastal beaches and mudflats, using its long bill to forage for shellfish and marine invertebrates in muddy, shallow water. They prey upon bivalves such as clams, mussels
