Nesting Black Terns

The Black Terns have settled into incubating. I suppose we'll start seeing young'ens in another week or so.

I approached too close to one of the nest sites and the female let me know about it...I backed off and she settled right down. They are incredibly dainty, beautiful birds.  ~ Paul Higgins

The Black Terns near Randolph are finally starting to hatch. The images are self explanatory. All images taken yesterday. There are some hidden chicks, look closely.  ~ Paul Higgins
