Photographed on Long Island, the young Oystercatchers are happy to receive food from their parents but don't depend on it anymore. Their eye color has not changed to yellow yet. I liked the high key effect here.

Nice walking pose. The food item in the beak is a plus.

It looks like this one has learned well from its parents, Axel! Nicely caught with the food in beak.
