Sterna sandvicensis - Karagagalı Sumru [TR], Sandwich Tern [EN] is second species of the family posted by me. This is winter form with lighter plumage. In summer, breeding form has black front. It is recognized by yellow tipped black bill.
The tern is found in all coastal zones of Turkiye and it breeds in Gediz Delta (İzmir Prov.).
This shot was taken two days ago on Tuzla Lake with distance of 100m from Mediterranean coast. Hüseyin and me observed about 22 species in this point. I am pleasure to dedicate it to my dear friend, Hüseyin Meşe (efsus) as a small memory of the day.

A perfectly frozen tern in action Ahmet, the sharp image reveals the salient features of this beautiful bird nicely against the contrasty blue sky. Hüseyin will love this, I'm sure.

Selam sevgili Dostum!
Gelinciğe takılıp kalınca bana ithaf edilen bu enfes kuşu kaçırdım. Son karelerinizin hepsi öyle güzel ve enfes olmuş ki bunları nasıl kaçırdığıma yanarken son karedeki bu sürprizi neredeyse görmeyecektim.
Fotoğraf gerçek bir usta işi olmuş dostum.Ayrıntılar ve özellikle göz teması enfes.
Çok teşekkür ediyorum dostum. Dostluğun ve samimiyetin için.
En yakın zamanda Görüşmek üzere. Selamlar.

Hüseyin
