A few hundred metres along the coast from Burdan's Gate, on the Eastern shore of Wellington Harbour, I watched a pair of variable oystercatchers foraging. Their one, almost-fully-fledged offspring (shown here) pursued one or the other of the parents, harassing them for a feed. I guess teenagers of most species resemble each other in at least some respects.
