Out on the beach at Fort Desoto


There are several osprey nests along the beach at Fort Desoto. Osprey were flying all around me. Adding sticks to the nest and eating breakfast. It looks like to me that the osprey in the last picture is wishing he had some tartar sauce.


This great egret was skipping the sushi and going for a little lizard tartare.





Several ruby throated hummingbirds were eating breakfast from an agave plant.



Noisy black hooded parakeets were screaming across the park.

The usual stuff at Fort Desoto Park in early May. Except the hummingbirds, those are a special thing to see only during migration.

  1. A very beautiful series of birds. The Hummingbirds are very special and your in-flight captures of the Osprey are great.

  2. Lots of yummy breakfasts going on there. Your captions always make me laugh. And your photos always make me turn green with envy. So lovely. We did a little trip last week and I think we saw an osprey or two in a a nest on just about every pole .. I love knowing that they are doing so well.

  3. Excellent captures! I love the osprey’s wingspan…and neat to see him and the egret eating lunch!
