Here are some very cool photos taken by AAfCW Waterbird Technician Marc Rivadeneyra!
First the American Oystercatcher chick that was swimming to save itself at Cockenoe Island.
A Common Tern chick.
A Piping Plover chick.
A Piping Plover fledgling engaged in a variety of activities.
A pair of adult Piping Plovers.
Please bear in mind these photos were taken with a 50x zoom which is how we manage to prevent disturbing the birds and why they look like they have no idea someone is watching (because they don't!).
