Out on the beach while watching the black skimmers feeding their babies I caught an osprey flying by with what I thought was some nesting material. Since it’s late for nesting, I think there’s a small fish in there and he grabbed seaweed with his fish, a nice little salad to go with his sushi.
Other than royal terns bathing, it was a quiet morning.
I stopped by the Seaside Seabird Sanctuary to see if there were any herons or egrets still nesting in the mangrove trees. I found a very young black capped night heron walking around under his nest.
Up above another baby saw Mom fly in nearby and started screaming to be fed.
The baby was going crazy for a while before Mom finally passed that fish over to him.
An older juvenile was watching me take pictures from high up in the trees.
Great salty series!
“An older juvenile was watching me take pictures from high up in the trees.”
I’m impressed with your physical prowess. I’ll climb up a low-hanging branch but gave up going to the treetops several decades ago. 🙂
Have a great week!
I love that last photo of the juvenile!
