~Uneven lighting with windy situation made it a tough shooting condition, heck, that is how it is most of the time shooting in S.E.A. Mom flew in and was feeding the chick. Nest was high up in the mountain, had to climb steep steps to get to the spot. It was well worth it.

Gee, Troy, those shooting conditions sound like just what we have here most of the time :biggrin:

Sure has her head buried, amazing how they can feed that way.

Very nice, love the colors of the birds and the nice background. While we have Swifts around here, that is a different one for sure.
