A Least Tern "escorting" a Ghost Crab from the nesting colony. At one point there were several Terns helping out but this was the best unobstructed view from my vantage point.

Thanks Eric. I usually hang out about 1.5 to 2 hours. I've had a bumper year for Tern and Crab encounters, more to come. Great action that's easy to spot, when you see multiple wings in the air you know a crab is coming through. They don't stop until the crab is off the nesting flat.

Thanks Bob, it's been a great spring for Least Terns.
