Wild Bird Wednesday #160

Wild Bird Wednesday

I found yet another new bird at Mt. Trashmore recently. I heard this terrible racket, but couldn’t tell what was making the sound; then this bird and a sibling landed on the dock. Yes, they were the noisemakers! I think it is an immature Common Tern. I welcome your input on that. 

Immature Common Tern?

    • I hope to get some better shots, if it’s still around. They have a scissor-type tail, and stand long and low to the ground. Kind of like the dachshund of the avian world.

    • This was a first sighting for me. Thanks for stopping by. I’ll have to see if it’s still hanging around there. Maybe I can get better shots next time. A great day to you, too!

  1. I love to watch birds, but I don’t usually try to identify them, so I am useless. I’ll take your word for it. It is a great photo 🙂 I love wildlife, but it is not always to capture it. Birds tend to fly away when I pull out my camera.

  2. I like the bright white on the bird, the white sparkle in the water, and the white reflection on the surface on which the common tern is standing. Altogether it is lovely. Great photography. Blessings…
