Hi Gail! I have two nests that I visit, one friendly and the other one not so friendly. That crossed eyed look is from this very aggressive female osprey that Love's flying as close to me as possible.

Excellent shots Anthony. You need to come down to Florida for Merritt III. They are down there all the time. :wink:

Mike, I did a Google map search and your about 75 miles away. Sandy Hook only attracts about 300 plus species of birds! Do a Goggle search on "Birds of Sandy Hook, NJ" or "Sandy Hook, NJ" tons of stuff. Here's one link: http://www.state.nj.us/travel/virtual/sandyhook/index.html

Anthony, I looked at this thread and did a double take, they look rather familiar. Look here and see what you think:

When this female flew by this close I got "The Eye" as well. Now, given that I was shooting with a 500mm lens plus 1.4 TC, she certainly was not as close as yours. It is grand that you have a nest where they are so friendly. THis next has 2 chicks, and I am going to try to stop by most days this week as I expected the chicks will be getting ready to fly in the not distant future.

Nice shots, I think these birds are really quite fascinating don't you?
