New Bird Photographed – Least Tern

Least Terns

Once I saw my 200th species of bird, the flood gates just opened up.  While in Rhode Island in May, I got my first glimpse of least terns.  They were pretty far away at Sachuest Point National Wildlife Refuge, but I got much better looks in Connecticut, specifically at Long Beach in Stratford.

While walking the beach, a few of them would land on the shore line here and there, so I just hunkered down and waited for a chance.  My patience was rewarded too, with one of the terns landing very close while I was sitting on the sand:
