When we first saw this bird land on our boat, we had no idea what kind of bird it was. We also noticed the small tag on it’s right leg. Impressed with its beauty, we snapped a few pictures. Later, we did a little research. We were shocked to discover that it was an Arctic Tern. That told us something about our current northern location!
The Arctic Tern is a seabird that migrates from one pole to another. It breeds in Arctic and sub-Arctic regions of the north, and then it migrates all the way south to Antarctica. This bird has the longest, regular migration than any known animal. Pretty amazing!
