One of the most elegant terns on the east coast has got to be the Sandwich Tern. So far this year, I have been lucky enough to have the chance to photograph many Sandwich Terns along the Atlantic Coast of Florida. Below are some of my personal favorite shots. I hope you enjoy them! Note that many of the individuals shown below have leg bands – many Royal Terns and Sandwich Terns that overwinter throughout Florida are banded.
