Oyster Catchers are Groovy Quirky Birds...


i love oyster catchers....they are one of my fave birds.... along with chickens and crows, as you know by now......i like how they strut along the shoreline....only a certain tide height will do, ya know....and they peck here and there on the beach....and they have a bit of an "ants in the pants" thing going on.....i love it when they are backlit and the sun shines through their bright orange beeks....looks kinda like glass!! just glowing.......

 i've been creating oyster catchers in glass for a few years....bowls, windows, platters.....and just the other day i made some small oyster catcher garden stakes....they are suuuper funky....i totally smile when i look at them....and they will look soooo sassy in a garden....against the green of a coastal winter yard, or the brilliant colours of a summer garden....anything goes with these gals....
 they look especially good in a small gathering, the way you often see them on the shoreline....alone works too though, cause you always see at least one off by herself, away from the crowd!!! we all need alone time after all.....
