American Oystercatcher Hatchling

How can you not love this precious American Oystercatcher hatchling? It looks rather bland for now - all the better to blend in to the beach - but it will soon grow into a gorgeous creature.

That camouflage will allow this bird the best chance of surviving to adulthood, sporting that big and bold orange bill and returning to the Northeast to breed for potentially decades.
