Oystercatcher - description

The great oystercatcher has the underside of the body, belly and tail colored white. The rest of the body is black. His legs and long beak are red. Males and females are colored the same, only young individuals have light scales on their backs. During the flight, there are clear white stripes on the wings. Oystercatchers are loyal to a once chosen nesting ground and many of them live their whole lives with the same partner.

The great oystercatcher occurs mainly in Europe on the sea coast and in seaside meadows, where it also nests. In the 20th century, it gradually began to expand inland. Birds from the north move to the Mediterranean for the winter.
