Tern over Lake Michigan

This morning as I walked on the sandy shore of Lake Michigan I heard the gravelly voices of terns. Their beaks are orange and their bodies white and they wear a black skull cap. They are graceful in flight and they seemed to be enjoying the day as much as I was as I snapped this photo.

Here is a little more information about this beautiful bird:
