More drama from the juvenile sandwich terns. This time it was at Fort Desoto Park. The adult on the right was looking at me like “Lady, help me out here.”

Laughing gulls and sandwich terns were sharing the beach.

This juvenile laughing gull found a dead fish on the beach. He picked at it for a few minutes but ended up leaving it on the beach.

Laughing gulls were also plucking the bait fish right off the top of the water.

Another perfect morning walk at Fort Desoto Park.
