Common Tern (Sterna hirundo)

- Nickerson Beach, Long Island, NY

- June 26, 2014

 

This Common Tern appears to be taking a break after plucking a fish from the ocean. Shortly after I took this shot, it flew towards it's protected nesting area, likely giving the fish to one of it's chicks.

 

I used the Clone Tool and Object Remover tools in PaintShop Pro X6 to remove some distracting objects in front of and behind the bird.
