American Oystercatcher Search

After reading Stan’s and Nancy’s emails yesterday, I decided to check La Jolla this morning to see if I could find an American Oystercatcher. I searched every spot I could find coastal access from Coast Walk in La Jolla, all the way south to PB Point and didn’t find a single oystercatcher. Plenty of Spotted Sandpipers and Black Turnstones, and a couple of Wandering Tattlers and Western Sandpipers, but no luck finding any oystercatchers. The tide was fairly high and I’m sure that is an important factor but have no idea how that effects their choice of terrain/location.
