Least Terns with Chick
Photographer: Julie Schultz
Location: Pensacola Beach, Florida
This photo shows a two-day old Least Tern chick being fed by one parent as the other parent watches over it. The tern with the fish patiently and carefully tried to feed this chick for about five minutes before the chick actually took the fish. It is so sweet to watch how loving and attentive these tern parents are to their chicks and each other.
