Whats on your mind little tern,
standing at water’s edge in the early morning light,
as you watch the gulf waters churn.
With waves pounding the shore,
luring you with its rhymed verse,
hunger and fading light brings signs of yore.
Back in October, 2014…
As I walked along the shore, hoping to watch the sunrise, I came upon this Sandwich Tern. He, just like me, was all alone on this particular morning and together we watched the day begin.

Hi Anne, thanks for stopping by and thanks for your sweet comment.
What a sweet bird!
Hi Mama Zen! It is a sweet looking little Tern. Hope you are having fun days.
Where was that header photo take? Wow!
Hi Carol, I took this phone back in October, 2014 when we were camping at Fort DeSota County Park, near St Petersburg, Florida. Thanks for the comment.
Hope you and himself are doing well and narrowing down where you want to call home. Happy house hunting! Stay well and have fun!
Thanks Sheila. We’re getting there. Meanwhile still having misadventures in our RV!
Those are such good photos. So good that I am able to see that your Sandwich Tern is what we in the UK call Cabot’s Tern, a slightly smaller race of our own North Atlantic Sandwich Tern. I’m looking forward to seeing them returning North any day now.
Hi Phil I am so glad you enjoyed viewing my photos and seeing the likeness to your Cabots. Please stop by again and Happy Birding!! Hoping you see all the migrating birds back!
Such a beautiful bird!
Hi Gunilla! It is a beautiful Tern. I was so grateful to be able to watch it on this morning! Happy Birding! Chat with you soon.
