Terns are more streamlined than gulls. The bill is sharp-pointed and tilted towards the water. The tail is usually forked. Terns often hover and plunge headfirst for fish.
We were entertained this morning by a Common Tern at the pond in Marie Curtis Park.
Brown-lipped (Grove) Snails:
A photo I took and captioned for fun.
Hedge-crickets sing; and now with treble soft
The red-breast whistles from a garden-croft;
And gathering swallows twitter in the skies. – John Keats (1795–1821)
