Black Tern (Chlidonias niger) feeding a youngster on the wing. The young ones do fly at this age, but they are being fed so that they do not have to expend energy in search of food, and can grow faster. Notice how the adult is losing the breeding colors (white spots appearing on the head). Photographed at a small marsh near Sherwood Park, Alberta.
