Juvenile Crested Terns, Hervey Bay, Queensland
Juvenile Crested Terns, Hervey Bay, Queensland

Dean and I have seen Crested Terns everywhere.  As a matter of fact, according to Birdlife.org.au – ‘There are few stretches of the Australian coastline where the Crested Tern cannot be seen.’

Also know as the Bass Straits Tern and the Torres Straits Tern, it wasn’t until we reached Hervey Bay in Queensland, a mere 3½ hour drive from home, that we actually saw some juveniles.

These two were ‘fishing’ for some lunch off the pier and were not aware I’d snuck up on them.

    1. They are quite prolific around Australia with only a few places where they cannot be found. The adults look quite funny ‘punky’ feathers on their heads.
