Day 9.214: Terns at Timber Point

Back on Day 5.184 - while visiting Maine from our home in New York, I took a favourite photo of a tern turning for a dive into the shallows off Crescent Beach State Park. Rather more recently, on Day 9.202, we once again got some lovely views of terns fishing as the tide turned.

We also saw them feeding their young who waited patiently on the rocks (see the bottom right) until their parent came along with a fish in its beak (see centre right) when they would make a huge din until the too-fast-for-my-camera-skills moment of the fish-transfer would happen and the adult would return to the hunt.
