..i dunno why, but these guys were fun to look at, they look pretty sharp.. i guess that’s what makes them “royal”.. πŸ™‚

The Royal Tern (Thalasseus maximus, syn. Sterna maxima) is a seabird in the tern family Sternidae. This bird has two distinctive subspecies.
T. m. maximus breeds on the Atlantic and Pacific coasts of the southern USA and Mexico into the Caribbean. The slightly smaller T. m. albididorsalis breeds in coastal west Africa.
American birds winter south to Peru and Argentina, and African breeders move both north and south from the breeding colonies. (wiki)

The Great Blue Heron (Ardea herodias) is a large wading bird in the heron family Ardeidae, common near the shores of open water and in wetlands over most of North and Central America as well as the West Indies and the GalΓ‘pagos Islands. It is a rare vagrant to Europe, with records from Spain, the Azores and England. An all-white population found only in the Caribbean and south Florida was once known as a separate species, the Great White Heron. (wiki)
