Sandwich Tern

Last Saturday I went with a couple of friends to North Lido Beach in Sarasota (after finding the Tropical Kingbirds nearby). We found a couple Sandwich Terns along the shore. This is one of my favorite species of tern, partly because the pale tip makes them so easy to identify, and partly because their slender wings and long bills give them an elegant appearance.

They also seem to make me hungry, so after returning to the parking lot, we ate–you guessed it–sandwiches. I thought it would be fun to collect some of my favorite Sandwich Tern photos into a gallery. Only the image above comes from North Lido Beach.
