I took these shots today at Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge which is a stones throw from JFK international airport in NYC. You can see planes on the runway from here as the subways pass by, but it is also a great place for shorebirds in the summer.

exif info:
:NIKON D60F stop:F/9.0Exposure:1/320 sec.Focal length:300.0 mmFlash:flash did not fire (0)Metering mode:spot (3)


First was the staredown:



then the fights, unfortunately this all caught me off guard, but I did get this one shot:



a little while later:
