Scenic Sunday: Term rock


On this rock facing Tasman sea, sea birds, the terns nest. When the nestlings are strong enough, they fly to Australia. The terns are very small, and I can't imagine them flying to Australia. The rock is white from the droppings. I went to Whatipu on the beginning of December and saw the chicks.

The ladybirds are small too, I do not know how they fly to every country.

I have them in my place, you have yours too.

Maybe they followed your luggage when you traveled.

They are amazing birds. I can't imagine them flying nonstop to Australia. Great photo.

Nice photo. The ability of birds are unbelievable!!! The distance they fly is incredible but I wonder how they sense direction without a compass...
Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful day.

Are these the only birds that nest there? So they have the whole rock to themselves, kind of like their own little island!

This rock reminds me of a two humped camel. Nice photo.

Ann, that scene looks like it could be here in our Pacific northwest with similar rock structures in the ocean.

I wanted to be sure and wish you a joyous and blessed holiday season and say thank you for being a "neighbor" and sharing. See you in the New Year. ;)
