Extinct - Canary Island Oystercatcher

Next up in the series of extinct birds from the Ghosts of Gone Birds live art studio is the Canary Island Oystercatcher...

Confined to the Canary Islands, this oystercatcher disappeared some time after 1913.  It died out when humans depleted the shellfish stocks on which this bird fed.
