Courtship of the Terns

Recommended Posts

Taken yesterday at Carrmill the male Common Tern is feeding the female as part of the courting ritual.

In most cases of courtship feeding,the female adopts an attitude and calls almost identical with those of a young bird begging food from its parents, and the male puts food into the female’s mouth.
