Nature clicks #107 - Caspian Tern

Elegant Tern

I'm already in the next city on this week's business trip but still like to show you another image from my short visit to the Bolsa Chica Ecological Preserve two days ago. This Caspian Tern flew over my head a couple times and I'm very glad I can share this photo with you. I had a nice conversation with a local photographer and he helped me with identification of the birds and I learned a lot about their behavior. It is always nice when wildlife photographers share their knowledge about the local species with someone who is relatively new to the area. Terns are not always easy to identify and they may have a different look during the winter.
