Description
Baby Royal Terns have a very difficult life when they are this young. They must be constantly guarded by a parent or guardian to make sure they are not attacked by gulls. One of the parents is constantly flying in and out trying to keep Jr. fed while the other parent stands guard. It is amazing how attuned the adults and baby are to each other’s call. Shortly after this photo was taken, one of the parents flew in with a fish. You can see by the look on the baby’s face and its mouth wide open that it knew dinner was on its way.
