Two Chicks at the Beach

I spotted these two chicks on the beach yesterday.  I managed to get a quick a photo with out them noticing.  I think they had snuck away from the watchful eye of their dad.  They were kind of cute with their matching ankle bracelets. It looked like they were trying to play all grown up, but it was still a little too cold and foggy for any sun bathing.


  1. Have you seen a lot of chicks? I am surprised at the bands … surprised that they have been banded already. Hard to imagine that process since they must be on the move a lot!

    1. I have only seen chicks a couple of times, and this is the first time I have seen two together. They are banded while still on the nest, which is normally the first day or so as they leave the nest very soon after hatching. In the care of the dad I might add.
