Arctic Tern

Terns are a familiar sight where there is water nearby and small fish to prey on. In my opinion one of the most lovely and elegant birds when in flight. A little less elegant when shuffling around on its feet.

Arctic tern, pictured above is the longest migrating bird in the world. It migrates from the summer of the the north to the shores of the Antartic and back again. Amazing considering the small size of the bird as well.
