Wonderful shots of these terns! Not sure what type, but they are beautiful. I remember that game in Highlights magazine while waiting for the doctor. It was one of my favorite things to do. The tern in the middle photo does look like he's being lectured. Too funny!

Barb

Your photos are excellent, Sallie and I like the new look of your blog. Very nice indeed.

Amanda

The best hair! Love it.

Phil

I love your tern shots Sallie. What I'd give to be close to those carrot bills on that beach right now. I'm sure they are Elegant Terns, elegant too!

Fantastic shots of the terns. The last shot would be perfect for children circling the ones that are different from the others.

Arija

So many young ones and just two mature adults. Nice shots.
I like the first few where they seem to react to someone saying 'pull your head in'!. It looks really cold and windy.

Penny

Sallie, terns always come up in crossword puzzles, but, I've never really seen one until now. Thank you for this "tern of events".

Sondra

Great photos of the Terns - we don't have Elegant Terns down here. The noisy one in the middle looks like a juvenile to me too.

Carletta

Terrific shots Sallie!
Loved your title and you are so right about the old magazine picture puzzle.

Sally in WA

Definitely reminds me of my time on the beach in Florida.

Boom & Gary

Great series, Sallie. Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

Looking at those birds make me in good mood :)
Fine photos !

Andrew

Beautiful birds to see Sallie... fantastic images .

Hazel

I love the top photo! The noisy one in the middle shot reminds me of the young wanting feeding-even when they don't know it.
