Oystercatchers are very territorial birds and will respond aggressively to decoys. This behavior is being used successfully in banding projects in coastal North Carolina, Texas, California, Florida and Monomoy National Wildlife Refuge in Chatham, MA (click here for more information).
In 2006 we used the oystercatcher blank to make Eurasian Oystercatcher decoys that were used in a project in Spain.
