This darling baby Common Tern would wait within the beach grass waiting for mom to arrive with a meal. Somehow with all of the terns flying around, the baby knew which one was mom.
When she knew mom was drawing near, she would come out of the grass in a more open area, screaming “I’m Here! I’m Here!” Mom would swoop down and drop the fish in her mouth. Most of the time, quickly flying off again.
