    I’ve never seen tern chicks, and these are adorable. What a great series of photos, and what an opportunity!

      They have areas roped off for nesting. Some beach goers object because they do not want to share the beach with the birds.

    Nice bird photography Sherry 🙂
    Terns are such elegant birds to see and they are great flyers too.

      Thank you. We got dive bombed. They are so fast. They settled down once we stood still.
