WHISKERED TERN (12)
|WHISKERED TERN (Chlidonias hybrida) - DANUBE DELTA|
IN THE WORKSHOP I POST ANOTHER BIRD WITH HIS EGS.
This species breeds in colonies on inland marshes, sometimes amongst black-headed gulls, which provide some protection.
The tropical forms are resident, but European and Asian birds winter south to Africa and the Indian Subcontinent.
The whiskered tern eats small fish, amphibians, insects and crustaceans.
