Common Terns

Below is a short video of juvenile Common Terns close to the shore at Stratford Point. One is fed a fish by an adult while others, not young of the adult, nevertheless beg for food. It makes short work of its meal and is begging for more the second the fish is handed off. The video was shot with only the optical zoom of my camera - imagine the great looks you get from a scope!
