Common Tern

Common Tern aka. Sea Swallow (n.b. is not a type of swallow)

Battery Park, Manhattan, New York City, New York, USA
July 2015
Member of the Gulls, Terns, and Skimmers Family
§A Committee of Terns§
The Most Widespread Tern in North America

~true bird fact~ You ever wonder where these birds that pretty live at sea drink from? The answer is, actually, The Ocean. Like many sea birds, they have special glands that deal with the excess salt in their water source by excreting it. They don't even drink fresh water when it's around. As a Californian, I wish we could learn from these Terns, cause maybe it would help with the drought.

Has a list of priorities. Actually has a lot of lists
Envious of his simpler relatives, the Seagulls
Suffers nobly (even when it's probably not necessary)
Always feels like he's forgotten something
