After posting last week about Pied Oystercatchers, I decided to hunt up my photos of Sooty Oystercatchers. I have never seen this species around the bay as it prefers rocky shorelines and headlands. Apart from colouring these birds look very similar to Pied Oystercatchers. I took these photos at Point Cartwright on the Sunshine Coast. I saw two Sooty Oystercatchers that day roosting among the rocks with a group of Crested Terns.
