Russ, thanks for that. I have just seen something new to me. We see a lot of
White-winged Black Terns (Caloundra, SEQld), but I never see the behaviour
that is shown in motion on the website below. I went to update, terns, and
it took a while to load. However, there was a White-wing scooping food from
the sand. We only see them behaving as sea-terns, and not feeding at all
once they are inside the Pumicestone Passage. Fascinating. And a marvellous
site, and that's something coming from me, because I don't like the web - it
devours precious time.
I once spent a morning on the web trying (fumbling is a better way to
describe my searches) to find info about their nesting habits in the
northern hemisphere, and all I could come up with was the fact that they are
"wet nesters". I didn't find any pictures of nesting, though I found plenty
of other pics. Has anyone else ever found anything about them nesting?
