As I mentioned last week, I have better access to Cranes Beach which is my favorite local beach. Why? Well, quite frankly I get bored just laying around in the sand. Since Cranes has wonderful wildlife management, I get to take advantage of the wildlife after work when there are fewer people.
My all time favorite target species at Cranes is the Least Tern. The Male Least Tern has to prove to his prospective mate that he can bring home the sushi.
Before the the mating, the terns will engage in a little dance ritual.
A few years ago, I made a little presentation of the courtship ritual.
Stop by tomorrow for some terns presented in a different style.
Visit Wild Bird Wednesday to see what other birds were shot this week.
