This is a fairly old rookery, I've been seeing it for at least ten years. The chicks have not yet hatched...

It is forty-five miles from Times Square located in the widest part of Muscoot Resevoir in Westchester County

These images were shot from 1/3 of a mile, so my map tells me. And for those who think the opposite shore is closer, I also thought that, and actually walked around the lake (a five mile hike) only to find when I got there that it was actually further away...

Those are amazing photos Dave. I've never seen anything like that. Is there no way to get closer? I guess not without a boat. The 5 mile walk was good exercise, but must have been a bit frustrating. I'm still amazed how much wildlife can be found near cities. I look forward to seeing some more when the young are born. Nice job. Woody

:lol:

I have some shots from a few years ago, with the 1100 mm adapter AND a 2x adapter, 2200mm, where you can look into the nest, but everything is blurrereeeeed....

Plus of course, with that set-up, my aperture is something like F20

I'll try later on with the 1100 and see what my new camera can do.
