Headed out to Opal Beach first today, hoping to find some Least Tern activity. And – Boy! – did I ever.
This nest was within six feet of the road. Mom is sitting on the first egg. Others are likely to follow in a day or two. And Dad was shuttling little fish to her as fast as he could. I saw him deliver at least three in a matter of minutes.
Then I moved along, figuring I had intruded enough on this beautiful family.
