Next Generation Prep

Ospreys are “snow birds,” they do not stick around for the cold weather.

IUCN designation: LC The Osprey is a global bird whose populations are increasing.

I recently visited one of our many preserves and ran into these two birds. They were in the process of lining their nest for the upcoming parenting season. Ospreys are “snow birds,” they do not stick around for the cold weather. They generally return to the same nest each year. I’ll return to photograph over the coming weeks once the eggs have hatched. In the meantime, you can find a four-shot sequence here.

Gull


Well, I did in fact return to Presumpscot Falls Park today with the monster camera. No problem today, as I rattled off the frames as the birds flew by. As you can see, I also managed to photograph a Gull flying through. I shot 276 frames to get these images.

Film looks great and I shoot with it most of the time. But when it comes to action and clarity, you can’t beat digital.
