Royal Tern (Thalasseus maximus)

Origin: North American coastlines
Sighted at: Higgs Beach, Key West, FL


I was up very bright and early to hang out with my sisters as they ran a 5K this past Saturday morning. In between them starting and stopping the run, I wandered onto the nearby pier, and literally stumbled into a bunch of terns! They were pretty chill about the whole situation.
