Alone in the Crowd

The Sandwich Terns at North Beach made me laugh. I’m not sure if they were trying for courtship behaviors, or if they were just being silly. I watched several bring in nice fish, then just stand there trying to get attention from everybody else. Why didn’t they just eat their fish? Sometimes the crowd would catch on and start up a chase, but a couple of times the tern finally gave up and swallowed it himself. Funny birds.
