These two chicks showed more enthusiasm for breakfast than any of the others I watched. I noticed the adult flying in with fish but did not see the chicks until they leaped out of their nest and ran forward with their wings flapping.
Photographed on June 8, 2019, this image is from my second visit to the Least Tern Breeding Area on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. The chicks are now ranging in age between 1 day and two weeks old.
