A light-hearted look at Terns

Terns and gulls are among my earliest memories of birds. However, it is only recently - at the urging of a friend - that I have been taking a closer look at the variety in terns.

In looking over the photos I have taken, I realize that there are a number where birds are in unusual poses. It is so easy to put human captions to these pictures:

“Splish, splash, taking a bath!”

“Ooh, this wind is blowing my feathers around!”

“It's so-o-o hard to reach some spots!”

Showing off.

A demanding child.

These pictures are all of Crested Terns (Sterna bergii)

In a later post I will take a more serious and sensible look at terns.
