Friday's Foto

The Royal Tern is North America's second largest tern species, the Caspian being the largest. Breeding along coastal habitats from Maryland to Texas, they can frequently be found wandering farther north during summer months. Over the past few weeks at least three individuals have been spotted along the beaches of Brooklyn. After a storm hit the east coast in 2011, I had an unusual encounter with one particularly friendly one. I posted about it here.
