mdmphoto, what a sweet shot!

Jack

Thanks, Jack; I was actually hoping to catch a feeding, but the parents never returned, and it started to sprinkle a little, so, being on my bike I decided to start riding back home.  Just as I started to pack my gear, though, the chick began to demonstrate an interest in eating, I think....

Faery Tern Chick, 7D II, Sigma 150-500, 1/500, f/6.3, ISO 800, 500mm

Cute one Michael! Although I wouldn't expect a tern in the trees... I thought they usually nest at the coast, right?

Wiebe.

Thanks, Nat; actually, here in Honolulu, they nest all over the downtown area....

@Alan - Nice series! :D

Sadly, unlike hawks, Peregrine falcons evidently do eat hummingbirds.  Strangely, our red-tailed hawks and hummingbirds are quite friendly.  From what I understand, the hawks see the hummingbirds as just too small to be worth the trouble of eating them -- or even the eggs from their nests -- so the little hummers nest near them for protection. 

When our hawks are visible on treetops nearby, most other species of small birds like starlings vanish, but the hummingbirds totally ignore them.  I snapped these two photos today -- normally, I don't post (or even keep) the back shots unless the head turned is at least turned to a profile, but I was really struck by the beautiful colors on this guy.

Photographed on a 6DII with a 70-200 L 2.8 IS.  Also, not a bad example of High ISO performance on the 6DII -- these are shot at ISO 2500 (profile) and 2000 (back).

The second photo has a remarkable number views, about a 100 in the first day or two. It's labelled Hummer_18, and I would guess that it is being picked up by those looking for a Hummer 18-seater. A bit of imagination in naming could lead to a huge number of views: naked.....

I would add that particularly the White tern always nest on trees. It's the only tern I know to nest on branches (no nest), all others nest on the ground. Once in Honolulu look at the trees for that bird!
