Awesome shots penolta! We don't see these up our way much if at all. I've never had the pleasure. Lovely bird!....cheers....Don
Thanks, Don. The Elegant Terns used to breed only on islands in the Gulf of California, but with the warming climate have been extending their breeding range Northward, now nesting by the thousands in Southern California. They spread North along the coast in their post-breeding dispersal and do reach BC in small numbers on occasion. Be on the lookout for them - you might get lucky any day now.
