Finn’s chicks


I went out to visit local nature with Finn, my 15-year-old grandson. We took many pictures. Here are two that Finn took of chicks being fed.

We started the day by watching a flicker father feed his chicks. Daddy has closed his eyes as he regurgitates ant’s eggs from his crop for one of his chicks.

We then visited an osprey nest, where Finn managed a superb shot (one that I have long sought): an osprey parent delivering a fish to its excited chicks in the nest.

    Lovely Finn! I am really enjoyed both your photos! It’s fascinating to watch chicks being fed; but it takes A LOT of patience.

    I can’t wait to see what you and Grandad photograph next.

    Finn is very fortunate to be able to enjoy these outings learning and sharing with his Grandad. Well done both of you.
