Warning! This post may be pun-ishment for some! Please don’t tern away, just look at the pictures if you can’t take any more bad puns.
Walking on the beach I had been missing certain birds. The other day I took a picture of a bird flying by and said, “Now at least I have a picture of a tern!” Or was it “Now I have a picture of a Least Tern?”
Least Terns are tiny, about seven inches long. The flit around, though occasionally they’ll hover like a humming bird as they get ready to dive for fish, and they can tern a pretty good living at fishing.
I thought this tern looked angelic, but as they say, one good tern deserves another.
Here is another. I believe it is a non-breeding Forester’s Tern.
Later I saw a bunch of Common Terns.
Coomon terns are more than twice the size of Least Tern. And here the birds were singing “Tern, tern, tern”.
Or perhaps the Byrds were singing “Turn, turn, turn”.
No matter, they were all going after little minnows and taking terns swimming.
Have I terned you off with bad puns yet? I hope not because here’s a few more.
