Common Tern (Sterna hirundo)
- Nickerson Beach, Long Island, NY

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.
