island neighbors

Curious tern saying hello
One of the other fun birds on the island is the White Tern.  They are about the size of my hand and very curious.  A few days ago I took the above picture as a couple was hovering 1-2' away from my face.  On this morning's jog I found my first chick.  They're usually difficult to find since the parents don't build a nest but instead just lay the egg on a bare branch.  This guy was about 10' off the round, laying on the branch.  Not sure if he'll survive or not.  Cute though.
