Virtual Black Oystercatcher Community Science Training

Important changes due to COVID-19: Oregon Black Oystercatcher Project nest monitoring is currently moving forward under the following guidelines.

  • Only conduct nest monitoring on your own or with members of your immediate household.
  • If members of the public are encountered during the monitoring session, all social distancing policies will be adhered (remain at least 6 feet away, bring sanitizer/disinfectant with you and clean your hands before and after your survey)

Please contact Joe Liebezeit at jliebezeit@birdallianceoregon.org.


Black Oystercatchers are a striking and easily recognizable bird in which we share our coast. It is also a species of conservation concern because of its small population size and vulnerability to a variety of impacts. Our work with this bird is helping in or efforts to protect rocky shoreline habitats. Learn more about the Black Oystercatcher Project
