I love my hometown of South Padre Island. I love being on the water before dawn and feeling the salty breeze in my hair. I love being one with nature and feeling the pure essence of it's splendor. I love the beach.
Arctic Tern . Terns are birds that are normally found near the sea, rivers or wetlands & typically breed in noisy colonies and lay their eggs on bare ground with little or no nest material. However, the marsh terns construct floating nests from the vegetation in their wetland habitats, and a few species build simple nests in trees, on cliffs or in crevices. The sexes are identical in appearance, but young birds are readily distinguishable from adults.
