Most Least Terns live along the coast, but there is an interior population as well, listed as endangered by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. The global population is estimated at 60,000-100,000 birds. The population in Florida is over 12,000. That’s where photographer Joshua Clark found the ruffled bird above.
