Inca Terns- a study

One of my favorite birds in the Lincoln Park Zoo’s aviary are the Inca Terns.  Every time I am there I try to capture what it is that delights me so much about them, today I offer you a brief study of these charming and silly birds.

  1. Haha. They have mustaches. I want to see one now! Have you seen a ferry tern yet. My favourite bird by far!

  2. So which came first the handlebar mustache on men or birds? Those Inca Terns are so cute I can’t stand it!

    • I think the bird were first! These are the males, the females also have them but no white or as pronounced! I’ll actually be posting photos of one soon.
