Iceland Gull

The Iceland Gull(Larus glaucoides) nests in the arctic regions of Canada and Greenland. The northernmost populations are distinct migratory and are wintering in the North Atlantic as far south as the British Isles and northernmost states of eastern United States. Some birds spend the winter on the Great Lakes. Some populations that nest farther south, as in Greenland, only moves to the coast after breeding season.

Black Skimmer

The Black Skimmer (Rynchops niger) is a tern-like seabird, one of three very similar birds species in the skimmer family. It breeds in North and South America. Northern populations winter in the warmer waters of the Caribbean and the tropical and subtropical Pacific coasts, but the South American races make only shorter movements in response to annual floods which extend their feeding areas in the river shallows. Skimmers have a light graceful flight, with steady beats of their long wings. They feed usually in large flocks, flying low over the water surface with the lower mandible skimming the water for small fish, insects, crustaceans and molluscs caught by touch by day or especially at night.


Arctic Tern

Arctic Tern (Sterna paradisaea is a migratory bird that breeds in colonies in the circumpolar arctic and subarctic regions of Europe, Asia and North America. The species is known to be the animal in the world that move the longest distance between their breeding grounds and their winter quarters, which are found in Antarctica. The populations that are moving, move about 40 000 km annually, equivalent to a lap around the earth.
