Looking Back

This Forster’s Tern takes one look back as he zips off across the salt marsh as evening approaches. Forster’s Terns are super fast and erratic flyers, and I can go dizzy trying to follow them as they swoop and dive for small fish! This adult also has his orange breeding bill color.

  1. A lot of lipstick and socks to match. All dressed up for the dance. Gosh, it looks like the tern is motionless to me!
    Nice bokeh even! 😮

  2. Great pictures – terns are such a treat to watch and photograph.

    If you are interested it would be great if you could link you blog up to Wild Bird Wednesday, which runs on my photoblog on Wednesdays (!) – about 60 bird bloggers from around the world already join in.

  3. Now the song “Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, zip-a-dee-ay” won’t leave my mind!!!…Not a Bluebird but might as well be with the jubilant zipping of this gorgeous albeit dizzying bird.

  4. Love that mating colored bill – really stands out against the white. He looks like he is definitely built for speed!
