Sculptures :: Birds :: Medium Birds :: African Black Oystercatchers (Haematopus moquini)

The sculpture base was just as important as the birds themselves. I have included many shoreline creatures; starfish, crabs, mussels, oysters and redbait on the base. There is a secret clip that opens one of the oysters to reveal a large sea pearl.

What fun it was to enquire of the purchaser after six months, whether the surprise had been discovered.

These birds are now highly endangered.
