Can someone ID this bird ?  Canon 7D mkII with 400mm f5.6L

I agree with Rpt and Fragilesi, it's an Oystercatcher of some sort. If we knew where and when it was shot, we could probably dig a little deeper and get the subspecies also. We can rule out the ssp with a "Black*" in the name and also the Sooty.

Sandy Hook, NJ

Okidokey. Then my primary guess would be that it's an American oystercatcher - Haematopus palliatus.

Couple shots from last Sunday. Saved off my facebook onto my iPad to upload hopefully the resolution is decent.

Bald eagle and red tailed hawk

Both with a canon 70D

Just spent a week in Cyprus photographing birds. I was shlepping the 5dIII + 2xTC + 300/2.8 and my wife the 7DII + 100-400 II. She knows absolutely nothing about photography and just uses my setting C1-C3 and back-button focusses. The only time it went wrong when she (initials MF) saw the MF-AF switch (I am AF) and wondered why it wouldn't focus when she switched to herself. Still, she really saved the day when we found some flamingos flying and I locked down with a "card full". She took the the two of the pairs in flight and  I did the massed flight and the three head on.
5D III, 7D II, EOS-M, Powershot SX50, 300/2.8 II, 1.4xTC III, 2xTC III, 70-200/4 IS, 24-105, 15-85, 100-400 II, Sigma 10-20, EOS-M 18-55, f/2 22.

Caught an image worth sharing, even if it is just a rat with wings, more hovering than "in flight". Ring billed gull, Harmony Lake, ND, USA, Canon 7D, Tamron 150-600, 1/640, f/10.
