Osprey FlyBy @ Blackwater NWR

A series of images of a close Osprey flyBy at the Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge in Cambridge Maryland.

All images were taken with a Canon 1D mkIV with a 1.4x Teleconverter.

Osprey Nest On Platform At Brigantine

Images are from a trip to the Brigantine Division of the Edwin B. Forsythe NWR in Oceanville, NJ. There are many Osprey Platforms scattered along the Wildlife Drive at Brigantine to get interesting images of Ospreys in and near their nests. Also you can see them flying into the Platform to feed the young and get interesting Osprey nest images if you have long lenses. The Images here are along the first straight away upon entering the Wildlife Drive with Atlantic City blurred in the background. The images were taken with a Canon 400mm DO lens with a Canon 2X Teleconverter on a Canon 1DmkIV.

Ospreys Bringing Sticks to Their Nest

Osprey often keep bringing sticks to their nests even after they are built and there are young chicks in the nest. I do not know if it is for repairs or just what they do. It is fun to see them swoop them up from the water by the shore.
