Wild Bird Wednesday 491 - Whiskered Terns (+)

Just a brief post this week as I continue to try to come out of covid-hibernation.  These are some shots of a large flock of Whiskered Terns (Chlidonias hybrida) that I took on my recent trip to Werribee.

On close examination I found a few other species of birds in the flock as well.  See if you can find them.  Consider it a kind of birding "Where's Wally"!



Hard as you may find it to believe, I may be able to visit some blogs this week!

Hope all is well, and that people have a good Christmas in these continually strange times.  SM

  4. Wow! Terrific photographs of the terns! I would have so enthralled I'd probably have forgotten to take any pictures.

    All is good here in the Sunshine State. Although today it is raining!
