After observing this particular family of falcons for quite some time, I estimate this was his 3rd day of flying. I was impressed with his maneuvers. Later in the season, I had a chance to observe two more nests and in both of them fledglings weren't this skillful.

More photographs coming soon, in the meantime you can always visit my falcon gallery, here: http://www.greggard.com/falcons

Osprey in the nest - New Jersey http://www.greggard.com/blog/2014/8/osprey-in-the-nest-new-jersey Adult Osprey, a.k.a. Fish Hawk, sitting at the nest with two chicks:

I photographed this nest in Southern New Jersey.

Interesting facts:

- Ospreys are unusual among hawks in possessing a reversible outer toe that allows them to grasp with two toes in front and two behind. Barbed pads on the soles of the birds' feet help them grip slippery fish. When flying with prey, an Osprey lines up its catch head first for less wind resistance.

- Ospreys are excellent anglers. Over several studies, Ospreys caught fish on at least 1 in every 4 dives, with success rates sometimes as high as 70 percent. The average time they spent hunting before making a catch was about 12 minutes.

- The Osprey readily builds its nest on manmade structures, such as telephone poles, channel markers, duck blinds, and nest platforms designed especially for it. Such platforms have become an important tool in reestablishing Ospreys in areas where they had disappeared. In some areas nests are placed almost exclusively on artificial structures.

- The oldest known Osprey was 25 years, 2 months old.

Morning bath in the ocean - Point Lookout, NY http://www.greggard.com/blog/2014/7/morning-bath-black-skimmer-nickerson-beach-ny Nickerson Beach, Long Island, New York is famous for seeing up close nesting shorebirds. First to arrive are American Oystercatchers which raise their young in early June. Later in the month, it is turn for the most numerous colony, Common Terns. Black Skimmers are the last ones to have chicks, late July / throughout the August. But do not stop there. There are also great bird photography opportunities happening in the ocean, terns diving for fish, skimmers bathing in the ocean, etc.

Here is one of my favorite shorebirds, Black Skimmer, taking a morning bath in the ocean:

Since Nickerson Beach provides hours of fun, in addition to sunscreen, remember to wear sun protective clothing (long sleeve shirt, pants, hat), sunglasses and bring plenty of water. 

The best buy I've made couple of years ago, for my Summer adventures, was this insulated stainless steel water bottle!

Simply things put it is a thermos. If you pour your drink cold and add couple cubes of ice, this bottle will keep your drink cold for hours. And believe me, I had this bottle laying in the sand in direct sunlight for hours. Bottle was hot to the touch but the drink? COLD!!! It is perfect for hikes as well.  

Nothing stops you from using this bottle during colder months to keep your hot drinks warm ;) These bottles come in variety of colors, sizes and plenty accessories. Just see for yourself: Hydro Flask. Highly recommended!

Blue-winged Warbler, Sterling Forest, New York http://www.greggard.com/blog/2014/7/blue-winged-warbler-sterling-forest-new-york Singing Blue-winged Warbler photographed in Sterling Forest, Orange County, New York:

Blue-winged Warbler singing photographed in Sterling Forest, Tuxedo Park, New York bird photography Canon 1Dx 600mm f/4 IS II 1.4x extenderBlue-winged WarblerBlue-winged Warbler - Vermivora cyanoptera - Tuxedo Park, New York

- for more detailed view and EXIF data, please click on the image -

 
The Blue-winged Warbler is a small warbler at 11.4–12.7 cm (4.5–5.0 in) long, with a wingspan of 17–19.5 cm (6.7–7.7 in). The breeding plumage of the male consists of a bright yellow head, breast and underparts. There is no streaking of the underparts of the bird. It has a narrow black line though the eyes and light blueish gray with two white wing-bars, which are diagnostic field marks. The female is duller overall with less yellow on the crown. Immatures are olive green with similar wings to the adults.
This species forms two distinctive hybrids with Golden-winged Warbler where their ranges overlap in the Great Lakes and New England area. The more common and genetically dominant Brewster's Warbler is gray above and whitish (male) or yellow (female) below. It has a black eye stripe and two white wing bars. The rarer recessive Lawrence's Warbler has a male plumage which is green and yellow above and yellow below, with white wing bars and the same face pattern as male Golden-winged. The female is gray above and whitish below with two yellow wing bars and the same face pattern as female Golden-winged. - Wikipedia

Least Bittern - Garret Mountain, NJ http://www.greggard.com/blog/2014/7/least-bittern-garret-mountain-nj This past Spring, I had a great opportunity to photograph one of the smallest herons, Least Bittern. Even though they are common in some areas, it is very hard to find them thanks to their fabulous camouflage.

In photograph below, you can see him in one of its famous poses, standing above water stretched between the reeds. Thanks to this hunting habit, Least Bitterns can feed in water that would be too deep for the wading strategy of other herons.

As I've learned on the Cornell Lab's website, when alarmed, the Least Bittern freezes in place with its bill pointing up, turns its front and both eyes toward the source of alarm, and sometimes sways to resemble wind-blown marsh vegetation. Actually, you can see this in my photograph as well. He heard my camera clicking and gave me this stare for couple of seconds, and continued with his hunt...

I photographed this Least Bittern at the Garret Mountain Reservation, in Woodland Park, New Jersey

Red-necked Grebe - Algonquin Park, New York http://www.greggard.com/blog/2014/7/red-necked-grebe-algonquin-park-Gardnertown-ny Last year, I had a chance to photograph a Red-necked Grebe in its basic colors in Kearny, NJ:

As it happens, most of the birds, if not all, look most beautiful in their breeding plumage. Unfortunately, winter visitors leave New Jersey before turning into its breeding plumage Luckily, this year's Winter was rather strong and some birds decided to stay a little bit longer. This gave me opportunity to photograph them in almost full breeding plumage, as this Red-necked Grebe photographed at the Algonquin Park, Gardnertown, New York:

American Redstart - Garret Mountain, New Jersey http://www.greggard.com/blog/2014/6/american-redstart-garret-mountain-nj American Redstart (Setophaga ruticilla) photographed at the Garret Mountain Reservation, Woodland Park, Passaic County, New Jersey during this year's spring migration:

Profile of an adult American Redstart at the Garret Mountain Reservation, Woodland Park, Passaic County, New JerseyAmerican Redstart - Setophaga ruticilla Garret Mountain Reservation, Woodland Park, NJ

- for more detailed view and EXIF data, please click on the image -

 

Interesting facts:

- The male American Redstart sometimes has two mates at the same time. While many other polygamous bird species involve two females nesting in the same territory, the redstart holds two separate territories that can be separated by a quarter-mile. The male begins attracting a second female after the first has completed her clutch and is incubating the eggs.

- Like the Painted Redstart and other “redstarts” of the Neotropics, the American Redstart flashes the bright patches in its tail and wings. This seems to startle insect prey and give the birds an opportunity to catch them. Though these birds share a common name, they are not closely related to each other. In fact, there are other unrelated birds around the world—such as the fantails of Australia and southeastern Asia, and other redstarts of Europe—that share the same foraging tricks. - source: Cornell Lab

Shooting tip:

Same as with the previous photograph, fast frame rate shooting of my Canon EOS 1Dx camera, helped me get the moment just right. Contrary to photographing standing/perched bird, action shots require the camera to be set on the highest fps setting. And do not forget to set your shutter value at least to 1/1000s to freeze the motion!

Interesting facts:

- Although both parents incubate the eggs, only the male Willet spends the night on the nest.

- Willets and other shorebirds were once a popular food. In his famous Birds of America accounts, John James Audubon wrote that Willet eggs were tasty and the young “grow rapidly, become fat and juicy, and by the time they are able to fly, afford excellent food.” By the early 1900s, Willets had almost vanished north of Virginia. The Migratory Bird Treaty Act of 1918 banned market hunting and marked the start of the Willet’s comeback.

- Like Killdeer, Willets will pretend to be disabled by a broken wing in order to draw attention to themselves and lure predators away from their eggs or chicks.

- Because they find prey using the sensitive tips of their bills, and not just eyesight, Willets can feed both during the day and at night.

- The oldest known Willet in North America was 10 years, 3 months old. - source: Cornell Lab
