Royal Tern

The beach is always a good place to capture photos of birds.

One day, I saw a flock of strange looking "seagulls" standing together facing the wind. The black feathers on their heads looked like they were being blown by the breeze. Some of the birds had solid black heads, like the one in today's photo, while others were spotted. No two were alike! I later identified these birds as Royal Terns.

Like the painted bunting photo sent yesterday, this was the first time I had photographed this species of bird.
