Baby Tern/Birding

 Baby common tern

This baby was AWOL and roaming the Pickering waterfront on Lake Ontario.

 Concerned parent

The tern parents were watching from above and...

Hovering over baby

tried to distract anyone who got anywhere near the baby.

FYI: I wasn't as close as it looks. I cropped the photos considerably.

I am linking with I'd Rather B Birdin'  HERE.

Oh he's cute! Nice captures this morning EG.

Kate said...

It's hard to believe that that little vulnerable ball of fluff will turn into that beautiful kind of bird!

He is a cute one. This also gave you great opportunities to capture the adults in the air.

It must be nerve wracking for bird parents when their offspring may be in a dangerous situation, I've watched it myself, they get so distressed. Fab shots as always EG.

That baby is pickings for a predator in Pickering, Glad the parents are nearby. The 2nd shot is especially good! It's funny the way they've got their "wheels" up when flying - just like a real airplane!

The parent is so handsome! IF the chick makes it to adulthood, it has much to look forward to.

Anni said...

Cute and fluffy! Great shots!

Abraham Lincoln said...

They seem to be very concerned. What is their mode of defense? Do they peck or flap their wings against you or what?

Michelle said...

What a cute baby.

LONDONLULU said...

It's always amazing to see how small they start out - love the contrast with the high-flying grown adult!

Randy said...

He's going to be one beautiful bird.
