I was after images of Osprey with particular interest in the dramatic hovering overhead and the steep dive into the water. Then I noted these three little water birds, clearly downy chicks.
It soon was apparent that the fishing was pretty good right where I was.
She repeatedly surfaced with another sunfish and made the rounds to find which chick was ready for another meal.
That was quite a lot to swallow. This continued with great regularity until none of the chicks would accept another fish. Mother then fed herself, and things settled into a quiet routine of the chicks cruising about with the wise parent keeping watch as they explored the marsh.
