September 13, 2019

Location: Indialantic Beach, James H. Nance Park

I am known as a Royal Tern
But John James Audubon called me a Cayenne
He thought I was the same as a Caspian Tern
At least he knew I'm not a Carolina Wren*

*Note from Dee: Inside joke for my sweetheart on his birthday. And I still don't know the Carolina Wren calls.
