We love Common Terns. You can find them flying, feeding, tending young, or loafing near lakes and rivers and along coastlines across the continent. The photos below are from our photo galleries. Enjoy the images!

See last Friday’s photo collection: Magnolia Warbler
HIGH FLYING: Bonesaw photographed this angelic-looking tern on an island that is part of the Isles of Shoals archipelago off the coast of Maine.
DIPPING: Jourdaj came across this tern along the shoreline of Mackinac Island, Michigan. It was dipping its bill in the water to feed on a just-hatched mayfly.
MORE FISH! KevinColton found this family on Eastern Egg Island off the coast of Maine. The chicks were calling out to their parent.
STRETCH! This tern was taking time out for a good wing stretch when online member KingFisher snapped a photo.
CAUGHT: Birdchaser took this shot of a tern flying against a pink sky. The bird had just caught a fish.
