In the Book of Job we are instructed to, "Ask...the birds...and they will tell you." In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus said, "Look at the birds." So let's ask the birds, and look at the birds, and see what they have to say. May God bless you in your quest! Bill Bossman

Not All Terns Are White
Black Terns, Chlidonias niger
Almost all terns are white with a black cap on top of the head. Black Terns are the exception. They are... well... black. Actually, a close look reveals they are dark gray with black heads. I saw this pair of Black Terns in a small wetland south of Pierre this afternoon.
