Little white and silver flecks moving through the sky like leaves dancing in the wind. Twisting and turning, colliding and winding, at first glance they disappear with the dark blue of the water. But with a simple turn, the setting sun light reveals them, and they emerge from the dark backdrop of the water and glow a bright slivery-white. These little slivery-white flecks were terns flocking over the ocean the other night. We were lucky enough to have witness this as we were up on the light house enjoying the sunset. This event went on for about five minutes and almost every tern on the island was participating. It was a foreign feeling to have the island quiet of terns. But the ocean was a roar with the commotion they were making. This flock was the most terns we saw on PMI so far this spring. As we predicted, more terns came to PMI that day and were flocking to strengthen the colony and welcome the new arrivals. We hope to have more arrivals like this as spring progresses.
