Week 14- Wolfe’s Pond Park, Staten Island

On April 27, 2023 at 9:38 am, I visited Wolfe's Pond Park, on Staten Island. On this day, the weather was 52 degrees fahrenheit and it was cloudy with winds going 15 mph and this was before a rainstorm. This picture was taken on the beach part of the park and it shows an American Oystercatcher, also known as Haematopus palliatus. They are large, conspicuous birds, easily recognizable by their black and white plumage and bright orange-red beaks .American oystercatchers are primarily found in coastal areas, including sandy beaches, mudflats, and salt marshes. They are named for their preferred food source, oysters, which they open by hammering their bills into the shell. They also eat other bivalves, crabs, and other small invertebrates found in intertidal areas. Due to habitat loss and human disturbance, American oystercatchers are considered a species of conservation concern in many areas
