I returned to Nickerson Beach to see how things were progressing at the oystercatcher nests. I'll let the pictures tell the story.

As you can see, they are still incubating the eggs. I expect chicks any day now.

These were taken with my Nikon D300, Sigma 150-600 Sport, Tamron 1.4x SP TC, Nikon SB-910, Magmod wildlife kit (Flash extender). Support includes a Feisol CT-3401 tripod and Jobo Jr Gimbal head.

Comments and suggestions welcome,

Morris

Excellent detail, Morris! Looks like you got quite close to the oystercatcher. Good luck with documenting the saga.

I love the white coral sand of your beach...matches the 255 white of your birds. Is it really hard to get feather definition in these birds?

Thank you Amit. I was 28 feet away (exif) using 600mm + 1.4x = 840mm on crop body.

Thank you Mogul,
Not quite 255 white as there is detail and its' an art to photograph a black and white bird and get feather detail in both the blacks and whites. I shoot in manual exposure and use fill flash which helps wiht the blacks.
