Royal Terns

Thalasseus maximus


Shorelines/beaches through out most of the Americas.


This family seemed to be weaning their chick. The chick was loudly begging for food, but the parents appeared not concerned. They were among a large flock of mostly laughing gulls and a few brown pelicans this morning at Miami Beach. The last photo is the juvenile.
