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.
You are so fortunate that the Osprey nest in your area and these are marvellous shot. Love the Hummiers.
Great series of shots of the osprey.
A very beautiful series of birds. The Hummingbirds are very special and your in-flight captures of the Osprey are great.
Very cool shots. I love the perspective of the one hummingbird shot especially!

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.
Oh my! Those Osprey shots are stunning.
Wow. The focus is so perfect on these shots. Well done.
Love the osprey, hummers and the cool parakeets. Great shots!

What wonderful photos – love the hummingbird and the parrots especially!
Oh, the osprey shots are amazing! But they all are…loved the egret, the hummers and all! Great post!
Do you think the parakeets were screeching because they hadn’t found food yet? You take amazing photos. The one of the osprey and its breakfast is just WOW!
Take 25 to Hollister
Excellent captures! I love the osprey’s wingspan…and neat to see him and the egret eating lunch!
