Least Tern hatchling (Sternula antillarum)

Posted on Jul 11, 2014

We have a bunch of our Connecticut locations with hatchling Least Terns right now though they are not anywhere in the state in high numbers this year. They can be a difficult species to predict and protect, sensitive to a multitude of disturbances both natural and introduced by humans and vulnerable to changes in prey levels.
