    Fantastic!! I so enjoyed these endearing photos, Sherry, of the American Oystercatchers. You captured some great moments with the parent shielding the chicks, and all the chick photos are adorable.

    First time I have seen their chicks – very cute.

    Hello Sherry, I was wondering if you will ever paint again. One of the first paintings I ever bought was done by you, and i cherish it dearly.

      Thank you, Bruce. It is nice to hear from you. I would like to paint again but I need studio space. I was hoping to move out of my tiny apartment but the rise in prices post COVID made that impossible with our small retirement funds. I’ve put my artistic drive into photography and digital art for now.

    Their chicks are darling! I liked your photo of the young bird with one foot raised in front of it.

    When I saw those spread wings in the third photo, I wondered if there might be another chick there. Sure enough — there it is, in the fourth photo. My favorite is of the adult offering the bit of food to the chick. They’re so sweet.

      The chicks are so sweet. If you ask your local birders they can tell you where to find them.
