Sterna hirundo (Tr: Sumru, En: Common tern)
I was in Istanbul last weekend and saw this beautiful birds for the time. They were in the beginning of breeding season and courtship behaviour, like fish submitting have been seen.
This species has a large range, with an estimated global Extent of Occurrence of 10,000,000 km². It has a large global population estimated to be 1,100,000-4,500,000 individuals (Wetlands International 2002). Global population trends have not been quantified, but the species is not believed to approach the thresholds for the population decline criterion of the IUCN Red List (i.e. declining more than 30% in ten years or three generations). For these reasons, the species is evaluated as Least Concern.

Hello Mustafa,
A wonderful moment captured!
The details are super sharp, and the whites are nicely exposed.
I love the contrast of the black heads and the red beaks and feet.
These terns seem so elegant.
