Colony Life: Explore The Terns Of Seal Island

See video


Maveriks of flight, these delicate terns fill the sky with their calls and fill the open rock with their nests. Thousands of terns converge on Seal Island off the coast of Maine each year to breed. Instinctively they become a colony that can act as a defensive unit and spread the alarm in case of a predator.
