[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Common Tern (Tr:Sumru), sterna hirundo
The Common Tern (Sterna hirundo) is a seabird of the tern family Sternidae. This bird has a circumpolar distribution breeding in temperate and sub-Arctic regions of Europe, Asia and east and central North America. It is strongly migratory, wintering in the subtropical and tropical oceans. It is sometimes known as the sea swallow.

This is a medium-sized tern, 34-37 cm long with a 70-80 cm wingspan. It is most readily confused within its range with the similar Arctic Tern Sterna paradisaea and Roseate Tern Sterna dougalli.

Its thin sharp bill is red with a dark tip. Its longish legs are also red. Its upperwings show a dark primary wedge, unlike Arctic, in which they are uniformly grey. Its long tail extends only to the wingtips on the standing bird, unlike Arctic and Roseate Terns, which extend past the wingtips. It is not as pale as Roseate Tern, and has longer wings.

Sumrugiller ya da Deniz kırlangıçları (Sternidae), Yağmur kuşları takımına ait bir familyadır.

Tüm dünyada yayılış gösterirler. Kıyılar ve iç sular bulundukları yerlerdir. Aniden dalış yaparak besinlerini yakalarlar.

Cahit Bey merhaba
Sumru Adası deyince Fikret Bey geliyor aklıma. Belki Trakuşta çok fazla bahsedildiğinden:) ilk fırsatta gidip görmek istediğim yerlerden biri. Siz o şansı yakalayanlarımızdansınız. Son derece güzel bir çekim. Beslenme anından nefis bir aile tablosu. elinize sağlık, netlik ve kadraj gibi zamanlamanız da çok çok güzel. iyi geceler, şimdiden iyi bayramlar. selamlar.

Hello Cahit,

This photo, with the flying bird, is very well made. You got a nice moment with the bird bringing food proving your skill in taking such photos. The blurry foreground makes viewer concentrate on the main subject. The flying bird stays very nice against the blurry background.

Thank you for sharing,
Cristian

spettacolare momento di cattura di questa sterna che porge la sua preda, bellissima composizione verticale che mostra in tutto il loro splendore le ali protese verso l'alto, bellissimi i colori e le sfumature dei bianchi, ottima nitidezza.
