• The black oystercatcher can be spotted on rocky shores all along the west coast of North America, from Baja California to Alaska. It's a large, chunky bird, with a very bright orange beak. This illustration shows the birds with their favorite food - mollusks.


    An interesting but very subtle difference between male and female black oystercatchers is illustrated -- females have a dark fleck marking in their yellow eyes. The female in this illustration is the one holding the mollusk, and the male is standing above.

    All originals are framed in genuine mahogany frames custom-crafted by my husband, with UV-protecting plexi and acid-free matting (unless otherwise noted). The mahogany is stained a rich golden brownish/reddish hue.
