Default Black-necked Stilt Birds

Another first for me, bird is said to be common but I have not had the opportunity to photograph before. Have not been out to Loxahatchee for a while due to consistant, much needed, rain. Had a good day with more to follow this.

These birds were obviously trying to distract me from a nest area. Was only able to get one chick, they were quick to scramble into the brush.

K20D, DA* 300mm f4

Love those shots Ed!
I got a few shots of some a few weeks back but they were to far away for a good clear shot. these are fantastic, really like the in flight ones.

Excellent captures, Ed-

That 300mm brings the viewer right up front.

The birds in flight are very nice - I've only seen them on the ground. They are pretty birds.

Ed, all are nice but the BIFs are spectacular. In the hands of a competent person (like you) this lens stands well against it's older siblings.
