They are back!

April 8, 2010

Last year I spent endless hours observing an osprey nest nearby. I had hoped to follow them through the season, from nesting to raising their young. I managed to get some nice pictures of nest building, mating, daily activities, but then one day they disappeared without ever having hatched any offspring. I then moved on to a different nest, where I actually was able to get a few picture of their single offspring, but it was just the picture of a head poking out of the nest. I had hoped to catch the first flight, but missed it. Well, they are back. Both nests are occupied, so I will give it another try. Now, if my Canon extender would have fit on my Sigma 120-400 I would have been really happy, but sadly this is not the case. I might just need to invest in the Sigma extender.

Here are a few pictures I took today. I will keep posting on this blog as things progress, so stay tuned.

      Thank you. That was my plan. Last year one nest did not have any, the other had one. I really need to get the extender for my lens to get a bit closer.
