These birds in our city live on the very outskirts where a large river flows. It is an ideal nesting site for its rocky and sandy coasts. And besides, there are a lot of fish in this river.

These birds deftly and boldly dive under water for prey. Their prey is small fish, and sometimes molluscs. Seeing prey, the tern hovers in the air like a helicopter, takes aim and dives swiftly.
