Born with a fluffy down covering, which protects it from the elements until it grows feathers of its own. Despite its tiny size, the common tern chick is full of life and determination, making it a fascinating sight to behold. I photographed this little one waiting patiently for its parent to return with food at Nickerson Beach on Long Island, NY.
