[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Inca Tern (Larosterna inca) is a seabird in the family Sternidae. It is the only member of the genus Larosterna.

This uniquely-plumaged bird breeds on the coasts of Peru and Chile, and is restricted to the Humboldt current. It can be identified by its dark grey body, white moustache on the both sides of its head, and red-orange beak and feet.

Hello Pam,
That was a long trip, to Walsrode Germany. You made a fantastic photo of this Inca Tern. Excellent sharpness, details and pose with eye contact. Beautiful colours with a fine blurred background. I hope you made a lot of photos there and share them with us. That birdpark is fascinating.
