These three Pied Oyster Catchers were working the wet sand on the shoreline searching for food items.
The gulls were following and watching closely for ideas or morsels that might escape the OCs.
Quite a team.
This is an example of nature at its cruelest. The little bird got too wet when bathing, was attempting to get safe on the platform provided and was taken by the Kookaburra. It is the first time I have lost a bird at my watering ponds (that I know of).
