A tern for the better

An adult least tern offers food to a young juvenile on the beach in Boca Raton near the south edge of Spanish River Park in mid-June. Based on the size and color of feathers, a Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission biologist estimated the youngster was about 3 weeks old and capable of flight. Least terns are unique in that they nest on bare beach sand and rooftops; it has been more than 20 years since successful beach nests have been recorded south of Lake Worth. A nest near this location was destroyed by predators in May.
