One Tern Deserves Another

Heading towards Maryland’s Tilghman’s Island for the scenic drive and possible bird sightings, we stopped at Lowes Wharf Marina in Sherwood where several Forster’s Terns were perched on pier pilings.


A few were sleeping……

Some were chillin’ in the breeze……

And one was making a lot of noise.

He even performed a dance on top of the piling.


There’s always one in the flock that wants to be heard.Β  πŸ™‚

  1. Seems like I’ve developed a thing for solo birds dwarfed by their environments as I really like that second photo. Reminds me of the bird fishing at golden hour several days ago.

    • Thank you, David, I had only my zoom lens in hand; and I too appreciate birds and animals within their environment. The second photo was only slightly cropped to ‘fit’ my blog properly, but that was my intent with that photo. πŸ™‚

  2. Nice captures…don’t think I have seen a Forster’s, although they are present here in Alberta. I can always tell when the Terns are in the vicinity, as they can be quite vocal. You have a wonderfully alive neighbourhood.

  3. Terns are more fun than gulls. I like terns, I find them to be better flyers and excellent fresh hunters than gulls. Your shots are very good, Donna. πŸ™‚
