Baby Arctic Tern

I didn't know it, but this chick was right at my feet.  I could have reached
out and picked it up.  It was such a wonderful day I decided to sit on a inviting  rock out by Potter's
Marsh that was vacant.  It was the perfect spot to observe all the dragonfly's buzzing around.
It was very peaceful for about 15 minutes when all of a sudden an Arctic 
Tern decided he wanted to feed me a caterpillar.   After several dive
bombings I decided a quick exit was in order.  That's when this little guy
jumped up on the rock I was sitting on.   I had no idea....bad little pair of 
parents to leave their chick unattended!!!!


  1. What a little sweetheart.....when are we going to get together now that I'm done with my job? Heidi

  2. I'll send you a email message!
