    Arctic Tern feeding

    Arctic Terns are normally 'plunge' feeders as they usually dive into the water at high speed to catch small fish. This bird, however used a different method that I had never seen before. It would glide slowly just above the surface of the shallow bay water which would spook the schools of bait fish (sperring). These fish would leap out of the water and right into the mouth of the Tern. I watched it make dozens of passes over the course of an hour.
