One good tern deserves another....cough cough....um.....

Well, since this is a thread about The Birds Byrds, let me just quote them (or Pete Seeger, if you prefer...).  "To everything, Tern! Tern! Tern!, there is a season, Tern! Tern! Tern!..."

Nice shot! Hand held 600/4? Love that creamy background!

Amazing tern photos guys 8)
Now one from me...7D, 100-400L @400mm, handheld and heavily cropped.

from Wikipedia:
The White Tern (Gygis alba) is a small seabird found across the tropical oceans of the world. It is sometimes known as the Fairy Tern although this name is potentially confusing as it is the common name of the Fairy Tern Sternula nereis. Other names for the species include Angel Tern and White Noddy.

One more from today. 7D, 100-400L @400mm, f/5.6, handheld, cropped.

from Wikipedia:
The Red-whiskered Bulbul (Pycnonotus jocosus) is a passerine bird found in Asia. It is a member of the bulbul family. It is a resident frugivore found mainly in tropical Asia. It has been introduced in many tropical areas of the world where populations have established themselves. It feeds on fruits and small insects and they conspicuously perch on trees and their calls are a loud three or four note call. The distinctive crest and the red-vent and whiskers makes them easy to identify.
