These kind of shots are fairly easy to take the moment the chicks hatch at the shorebirds nesting colonies at the Nickerson Beach, New York. Young birds need to be fed multiple times a day, which keeps their parents very busy.

To find out how and where to photograph these birds, make sure to read my free guide on this amazing place: https://www.greggard.com/blog/nesting-shorebirds-nickerson-beach-long-island-ny-photography-guide
