"American" Oystercatcher Report

Jamie Chavez

For those who don't receive the eBird Rare Bird Alert, yesterday an "American Oystercatcher" was reportedly seen on the rocks below the Carpinteria Bluffs Trail near the Tar Pit Pak parking lot. The photos aren't clear enough to use the Jehl scale completely, but I see a lot of black on the bird in the checklist photo which makes me think hybrid. I wanted to pass this along in case someone wanted to look for it and try to obtain better photos.
