American Oystercatchers are common in San Carlos and draw attention to themselves with their loud cries. They probe sandy and stony areas for clams, oysters, and other mollusks, which they open by cutting or smashing. Te usually are seen in pairs and are vigorous, and very loud, during courtship displays, territorial conflicts, and interactions with intruders.
