DeKorte Terns

Sandy Sorkin filed this report SS3_8032 Forster's Tern-1
yesterday evening:

The temperature in the Meadowlands had to be 100 today [Wednesday]and very few people were as foolish as I was to be walking around with heavy cameras. 

Most of the birds were trying to cool off by doing nothing but eating and floating.  The exception was the Forster Tern population.  

Their chicks were just almost ready to feed themselves, but the parents were still involved in training.  The adults would bring small fish and then give the chicks flying lessons.

Nevertheless, the parents were doing a lot of diving …

Thanks, Sandy! Same goes for today.
