Terns getting ready for bed.

Royal tern being lazy. I probably could have stepped over him.

 I think they were watching a tennis match.

Sandwich tern with dinner.

Sandwich terns were taking a bath.

"If I just put my face in."

Royal tern flyby.

While I was hanging out with the skimmers, I walked around the other parts of the beach. The sun was an hour away from going down and I think the terns hanging out on the beach were getting ready for bed. All of the most common terns in the area were there: least, royal and sandwich. They were all hanging out together with a few laughing gulls mixed in. It's always fun to watch them take a bath. Although, taking a sandy bath does not sound good to me.
