    I visited Assateague Island this weekend. I can add at least 10 birds to my life list. I really need to start using my tripod again. My number of usable shots are not as high as I would like. Most of these birds were in groups and very dificult to isolate.

    More terns are arriving every day, cold weather up North is the signal for them to migrate.

    We went to Huguenot Memorial Park near Jacksonville, Fl. to work as a bird stewards on a busy weekend and managed to capture this image of a tern in flight. The sky was beautiful resulting in the vivid colors in the photo.

    This bowing is a typical behavioral exercise that I have seen among Royal Terns. Notice the Sandwich Tern (sterna sandvicensis) in the background.
