A Tern For The Better

1 post in this topic

I went fishing out of Cape Hatteras last weekend (fishing report to follow). On the way back in I saw hundreds of birds flying around an island inside of the sound. Once I got there, the sound of hundreds of Terns and skimmers with their not yet flying chicks was almost deafening. I waded in closer with camera in hand and took a whole bunch of pictures. Here are the ones I liked of the Sandwich and Royal Terns along with their chicks. Cool to see the variety of things they carry back to eat.
