This Time of Year is for the Birds

Male Osprey with catch.

 Birds are nesting in Florida. Chicks are breaking out of their eggs.  And birds are fishing and bringing their catches home to their broods. Here are a few of my recent bird photos from Florida's West Coast.

Black Skimmer with fish.

Welcome home.  Least Tern with fish.

Least Tern hand off.

These photos were taken with two Nikon cameras, the new Nikon D750 full frame camera and a Nikon D7000.  Lenses were the Nikon 200-400mm f4 and the Nikon 70-200mm f2.8 with the Nikon 1.7 teleconverter.  It is a good idea to get out now and get these photographs before it gets too hot and the birds go for the shade!
