Although they're known to be here during the winter, I haven't seen Forster's Terns (Sterna forsteri) recently. I saw a flock of 30 in Bodega Harbor this morning, so here are two photos for the record.
I couldn't get all of them in one picture, but the next image shows the most individuals I could capture in one frame. How many can you see? (Click on the picture to enlarge it.)
At the end of the day there was a beautiful sunset, with a variety of clouds and lighting in the sky. Here's one of my favorite views. To my eye, it looked like a large breaking wave. Do you agree or do you see something different?
P.S. I counted 24 terns in the second picture.
P.P.S. For a close-up of a Forster's Tern and a little more information about them, see the post from 23 January 2013.
