The White Tern BI9062

Add to Cart Download
The white tern is a small seabird with a unique nesting behaviour of laying eggs on thin branches without a nest, which is thought to be due to the reduction in nest parasites. Their eggs and chicks are vulnerable to heavy winds, so they quickly relay if they lose the egg. This artwork was created on the Cocus Islands.
