Nice shot. Out here the nesting sites are protected. They just discovered 7 nesting site near Los Angeles, this hasn't happened since 1940.

Congratulations Leopoldo! This adorable tern chick has been chosen as spotting of the day!

Once a common species, populations of least terns are declining, and this small tern is now listed as endangered.
