Wild Bird Wednesday: Eastern Osprey

Last weekend we went to Cabarita Beach on the Tweed Coast in Northern NSW for a few days. We only had one fine day while we were there. It rained the rest of the weekend.

On Saturday we drove to Norries Headland which is the headland at the south end of Cabarita Beach. While up on the headland I saw two birds of prey circling around looking for food.

I took almost 1000 shots and managed about 30 keepers. I was absolutely rapt to get these shots of an Eastern Osprey while sitting on the edge of the cliff. I still don't own a decent birding lens. My Canon 7D is a brilliant camera for bird photography (8 frames per second & hi speed continuous shooting) but I am still using my basic 55-250mm kit lens from my Canon 1100D.

You sure are right about one thing. These are most certainly keepers!
Ospreys are fairly rare around here and I'll drive quite a distance if even hear about one. Great photos Liz!
