I've never gone down to Sonora but after seeing your photos I would like to. Sounds like you had fun with this Oystercatcher and you ended up with a good shot. I love the pose at the edge of the water. Excellent details of the face, plummage and legs. The orange beak matches the eye ring.

Very beautiful contrast between the duller color tones of the water and the sand, the black and brown feathers of the Oystercatcher and the most wonderful bright colors of the eye and bill of the bird.
Excellent composition, sharpness and exposure due to wich the details in the feathers and patterns in the sand and water are greatly visible.
The bird does stand out perfectly against the softer color tones of the BG.
Excellent work. TFS!!!
Best wishes, Harry

Wonderful profile shot of this naughty bird and it really made you work for this image. Lovely colours and details on its plumage and the red eyes and bill looks awesome. Nice pose captured near the surf and waiting for a catch. The bright sunlight makes the image look lively. Excellent POV cinsidering your predicament and very nicely composed. Kudos.

Splendid composition with the waves coming ashore and the Oystercatcher watching the break zone for a meal. Great camera work results in great colors and details. Thanks Everton.
