We came upon these terns as they stood in the road engaging in what appeared to be a heated discussion. These terns produce some interesting loud, harsh croaking sounds.
Amidst the discussion, this tern regurgitated something...
While Caspian Terns are known to provide for their offspring for extended periods, I don't believe that was this tern's intention. Caspian Terns typically feed their young whole fish. Both birds seemed perplexed by the strange object excreted by the tern.
The second tern tried to get a better look.
There was some discussion about what sort of things this tern has been consuming....meatballs???
He decided to plead the fifth...
The Blue-Winged Teal and Limpkin were both so kind to pose for us.
The caterpillars don't stand much of a chance against the hungry birds!
