July 28, 2023: The Least Tern is a colonial nester on a few beaches in Falmouth. This smaller and feisty tern will dive bomb any intruders close to its nesting area. They typically arrive from wintering grounds in early May and depart by September. They nest on sandy beaches in shallow scrapes, often times laying two eggs. This new newly hatched chick is being fed by the male at a nest along Surf Drive.
