Least Terns - Sandy Point - Ipswich, MA - August 08, 2011

Sandy Point, at the southern tip of Plum Island, is still playing host to many Least Terns at this "getting to be late" point in the breeding season with many either on eggs or brooding recently hatched young as seen below.


A brief video shows a couple of nests and their contents.



Here's a youngster much further along as it eyes the guy with the camera and decides I'm not a threat after all.


A female(?) still on eggs.


and a few shots of the adult with the chicks and a chick alongside it's sibling that's still in the egg.
