I was out taking photos of some surfers and on the way home I saw a bunch of these Elegant Terns at the @bolsachicacon bridge. I had to stop and see if I could get a few captures. Here are 10 from the bridge. The first two were chosen as the best by my 8-year-old niece, Jordyn.

On the hottest day ever recorded on Svalbard we did a Zodiac cruise wearing fleece lined waterproof Onesies... very effective for keeping you warm in cold and wind, also very effective at making you feel like a basted Turkey in 20 degree heat! These Arctic Terns we’re enjoying the sun and heat to provide for their chicks and nests #arctic #terns #ternsofinstagram #arctictern #summer #higharctic #svalbard #svalbardlife #wildlife_perfection #birdingphotography #spitsbergen #zodiaccruise #wildphoto #claregoesawayagain

🌊▪️黑枕燕鷗🇭🇰(Juvenile ) Black-naped Tern (Sterna sumatrana ) Following up on the last post, here's a juvenile Black-naped Tern. When they're younger, they have more brown patterns on their back, and as they age, they gradually shed their black and brown feathers to become almost pure white in adulthood. Personally, colour wise, I like the juvenile in this stage more, since there seems to be more layers of colours that made the tern look more silvery instead of just white. In the last picture, this juvenile is demanding his parent to give him the fish it caught. #blacknapedtern #sternasumatrana #juveniletern #terns #seabirds

🌊▪️黑枕燕鷗🇭🇰 Black-naped Tern (Sterna sumatrana ) Habitat: Open ocean Migratory status: ☀️Summer visitor Fresh produce for the first pic! Black-naped Terns are one of the most common terns in Hong Kong, being one of the three breeding species here, the other two being Bridled and Roseate Terns. Like some other terns, they belong in the family Laridae with other kinds of gulls, and the subfamily Sternidae, which mostly accounts for terns within the family. This species is a medium sized tern, flying gracefully and seemingly effortlessly above the water surface with slow wingbeats. When they have spotted prey, they suddenly stall in flight and throw their wings backward, plunging straight down immediately beneath the water surface to hunt for fish and sometimes shrimp. They don't dive too deep though, and their wings could always be found breaking through the surface after a second or two after the dive, often with a wriggling fish in their beaks. Their pale colour makes it harder for fish to spot then against the light coloured sky, and this makes hunting easier for them. This applies for other seabirds with similar colours on their ventral side as well. However, pale coloured seabirds such as this species could be more easily spotted from above by predators or frigatebirds as a result due to the absence of a dark coloured back. #blacknapedtern #sternasumatrana #黑枕燕鷗 #terns #seabirds #laridae #sternidae #wildbirds #wildbirdsphotography #wildlifephotography #wildlife #biodiversity #香港生態

A new @USGS report was recently published about our Forster's Tern social attraction work in pond A16 at Don Edwards NWR. A breeding colony was established in 2019, the first time in 8 years! Find the report at pubs.er.usgs.gov/publication/ofr20201081 or hear more about it by watching our #BirdyHour talk by Dr. Alex Hartman, which you find at sfbbo.org/birdy. . . . #terns #forsterstern #decoy #socialattraction #birdconservation #wildlifeconservation

The least tern is the smallest of all the tern species, so just imagine how tiny their young are! Despite their size, these adventurous chicks leave the nest after just two days. #leasttern #terns #wildlife #wildlifephotography #coastalbirds #birdsofinstagram #birdwatching #birdphotography #masswildlife

Views from a bird hide... This time last week we were at #ryeharbournaturereserve in the scorching sun. After picnicking in the only shade we could find, we walked around the reserve stopping at three bird hides along the way. * * Highlights were the cutest and fluffiest oystercatcher chick on a nesting raft, a white stork soaring and landing to forage (first time seen outside of #Knepp ) and little grebes diving for fish and then battling with their catch. Also saw ringed plovers, grey plovers, lapwing, great crested grebes, little egrets, two rafts of cormorants (40+ ) and numerous terns and gulls. As we ate ice cream in the car after, a murmuration of starlings brought the bushes to life with their deafening chatter. Being attacked by flying ants that found their way down my top and into my bra was not a highlight! 🐜 😼 * * * #birdwatching #birdlovers #ryeharbour #sussexwildlifetrust #littlegrebes #greatcrestedgrebes #oystercatchers #whitestork #whitestorkproject #greyplovers #ringedplovers #lapwing #cormorants #terns #gulls #littleegrets #starlings #murmuration #naturelovers #nature_perfection #wildlifewatching #wildlifewalks #creaturesgreatandsmall

Nesse vídeo temos três espécies de trinta-réis, duas capixabas e uma estrangeira. O trinta-réis-de-bando (Thalasseus acuflavidus ), com seu bico amarelo, é um paciente comum por aqui. O trinta-réis-de-bico-vermelho (Sterna hirundinacea ) não é tão comum de recebermos, e é considerada vulnerável à extinção pela lista nacional de espécies ameaçadas de extinção do Ministério do Meio Ambiente. As duas espécies se reproduzem no litoral do Espírito Santo, nas ilhas costeiras. Por fim, o trinta-réis-boreal (Sterna hirundo ), com o bico preto, migra para cá quando chega o inverno no hemisfério norte (quando é verão por aqui ). .

“We are travelers on a cosmic journey, stardust, swirling and dancing in the eddies and whirlpools of infinity. Life is eternal. We have stopped for a moment to encounter each other, to meet, to love, to share. This is a precious moment. It is a little parenthesis in eternity.” ~Paolo Coelho Common Tern flying to his fledgling, Eastern Egg Rock Island, Maine. Photographed with a wide angle lens from a blind.

I am so grateful that I had the opportunity to share this season with common least terns as they hatched and grew to teenagers. I head west soon and will miss this slice of heaven, where my heart resides❤️🙂 #best_bird_shots #pocket_birds #wildlife_perfection #sonyalpha #leasttern #babysnimalstagram #massaudubon #shorebirds #yourshotphotography #bestbirdsofinstagram #birds_and_bees_flowers_trees #raw_birds #nature_perfection #terns #wildlifephotography #urbanwildlifechallenge #wildlifeaddicts #capology #capelife #wildlife_loop

for the first time in probably 5 or 6 years we’ve had a successful least tern hatch on our north shore! this year we have a very large colony so to see them hatching is very exciting!! #leasttern #shorebirds #sharetheshore #terns #beach #summer #fieldtech #wildlife #wildlifephotography #nature #wildlifebiologist

“Royal” . Having photographed these terns in both breeding and nonbreeding plumage, I’ve come to the conclusion that I prefer the dappled crown of nonbreeding to the sleek cap of breeding Royal Terns. There’s so much more detail to capture when complicated pattens are involved, and the beauty of those patterns definitely shows in this tern’s feathers. .

I am OBSESSED with the color variation of least tern babies! Especially within the same brood! It’s incredible in the end they all “tern” out the same 😋🧡 #leasttern #terns #shorebirds #sharetheshore #fieldtech #wildlife #wildlifephotography #wildlifebiologist #babies #summer #myjob #conservation #bestjobever #beach #protect
