Day One – My First Day As A Least Tern

My first day as a Least Tern was pretty busy. First I started off the day nice and secure under mom with my sibling.

Safe and secure

After a while, I decided to venture out on my own. Watch out for that first step! It’s a doozy!!

My first step

After only going about 6 feet, I’m exhausted.


Oh, good. Here’s mom to protect me while I rest. I love my mom! She’s the best!!

A Loving Push

I feel better now. This warm Florida sunshine feels very good.

Enjoying the sunshine

Hi dad! Where’s breakfast?

Where’s breakfast?

I think I’ll spend a little more time with mom. It won’t be long before I’ll be too big to snuggle.

Make room for me!

If only everyday were like this.
