The Osprey in the Harbor

with 2 comments

Okay, so I didn’t quite follow up on my promise earlier this summer to stake out the duck pond for osprey. But I managed to get some okay shots while I was out kayaking (you try getting The Shot while the tide gently rocks the boat away from your subject). Submitted for your approval, this photo and others from the same series to follow…

The Sanderlings in the Tide

These guys were great fun to watch, running back and forth against the tide. It brought back fond memories of doing the same thing as a child, although not quite for the same reasons.

These sanderlings were digging up their meals, insects that can be found by poking at the sand.

Fun fact: the sanderling has a large winter territory, covering coastlines from South America to the northern United States. In the summer, they return to the Arctic to breed.
