Aug 22 Sandy Point

35 species in total including previously mentioned Whimbrel; 6 Clapper Rail; Northrern Harrier.

5 Oystercatcher with one juvenile with abnormal growth on beak - pictures in ebird report below - can anyone identify?  The bird seemed to be functioning normally although parents seemed very aggressive in protecting the juvenile.
