3 days of gyrfalcon photography

We were surprised when we found a gyrfalcon nest when we were photographing the landscape. The hike turned into three days of bird photography.
In the nest were four chicks and the adults were busy feeding them.
This is one of the first times we used our new Nikon Z7ii cameras with the Nikon Z 400 mm f4.5 lenses. We also used the 1.4 and 2.0 teleconverters.

The gyrfalcon or Falco rusticolus (gerfalcon) is the largest of all falcon species. The Gyrfalcon breeds on Arctic coasts and islands of North America, Europe and Asia. The gyrfalcons on these photos are Icelandic.

The male lands in the nest with an eider duck chick.
