Least Terns (Sternula antillarum)

Posted on Jun 30, 2014

If Least Terns (Sternula antillarum) are dive-bombing you or screeching alarm calls then it’s a sign you may want to give them additional some room. Thankfully we have plenty of space on the beach for all of us to enjoy or, in their case, create a family. Pairs like this are starting to see their eggs hatching right now across Connecticut. Here’s hoping for temperate and mostly dry weather for the little ones. Why didn’t I put up a photo with adorable hatchling Least Terns? Because we have not had many successful nests in recent years and when we do even folks like Twan and me have not wanted to disturb them even momentarily in the slightest way for shots.
