These Royal Terns were on the edge of the Black Skimmer flock we watched on Wednesday, also on a stopover on their migration I think.
Once they were on the sand bar they stayed huddled in their own group, the wind blowing their top knots around.

They’re funny! The front one in the bottom photo looks like he’s out of a Dilbert cartoon!
And ready to tell a joke 🙂
Handsome birds. Their top knots are great😊
Very striking color combo but kind of comical looking. I hope to see them again and get a different angle.
Great shots in a challenging lighting situation.
