It's been a productive nesting season, especially compared to last year when predators decimated the nests, eliminating close to 50% of them. Here are a few recent images. All taken before work since it's kinda on the way to the office. This year my baby bird set up is the 500/4, 1.4tc, on a D500 with a Feisol tripod, Markins ballhead, and total sun cover up clothes.

1. Least Terns.
