I saw this start while I was taking photos of the skimmers in there nesting area at Nickerson Beach, Long Island, NY. There was just enough time to get this shot.

Comments and suggestions welcome,

Morris

I love seeing them work in the still, early morning. They disappeared for about 25 years and it's so good to see them back.

Watching them skim is a joy and they do it when ever it's calm which becomes more common as the weather stabilizes mid summer, Some move inland to feed when the water is rough. When did they dissapear? I've been photographing them since 2012 when I first started going to Nickerson Beach.

I'm not a birder, so this is anecdotal. About mid-'80s, the pair that worked my cove stopped coming and I don't think I saw any on the south shore until about 2003 or so. About the time the bay warmed up and brown tide became a thing.

I never saw an Osprey on LI, until about the mid-'90s. Did down in the Chesapeake, but not on LI. Now, there's a pair in every neighborhood. Same with bald eagles; never saw one locally until about 10 years ago. (I did see them at 10,000 ft migrating) I know they were around (migrating at altitude) but now they're fairly common in the fall, showing the Osprey how to fish like a pro.
