I spotted an 2 American Oystercatchers
near White Slave today @ 8am
standing one-legged. Are these common on Bonaire?
I also saw a Barn
Owl fly out of a cave last Sat in the daytime 3pm a
mile north of the Bolivia plantation ruins along the east coast.
Thanks for sending along the photo and reports. American Oystercatchers
regular on Bonaire in small numbers and have apparently bred,
though I have
not personally found evidence of breeding. Do you have an overall
bird list for your visit or bird photos?
I'm not really a birdwatcher,
thus no list. But I am out and about often with still camera
in hand. I will pass on only good pix to you if you would like.
And I'll report anything I think is unusual if you want. Just
let me know. Here is a pic of American Oystercatcher. Not my
best shot but here it is.
