GIF-Picture of a White Tern. White Tern

The white tern is unmistakable with its pure white plumage and black bill. Its habit of fluttering curiously over visitors assures that its presence will be noticed. A single egg is laid directly on a tree branch, a ledge, or on any suitable surface. The growth of trees on Johnston ensures that the population of this attractive bird will continue to increase.
