More NZ Dotterels

NZ Dotterel Chick

Today’s images are from the older chicks which I have to admit were far easier to photograph.  Or probably just easier to see because of their size.  The camera wouldn’t even focus on the smaller ones but auto focus was working just fine with these cute youngsters.

There were two roped off areas fairly close to each other with chicks in both areas.  I watched while one of the parent birds head over to the other area in stealth mode as much as it could, however on being spotted it was swiftly given the short shift.

I missed the angry exchange with the camera but it was amusing to watch.
