Terns of Cape Cod:
Birds of Paradox          

Presentation by Peter Trull: Naturalist, Author & Lighthouse Charter School Science Teacher

Location: Harwich Community Center (#100 Oak St.)

Take a photo-journey with Peter Trull as he explores the behavior and biology of the Cape’s four tern species: Roseate, Arctic, Common & Least. Terns migrate long distances to reach Cape Cod. They are plunge divers, hovering above the ocean’s surface before plunging beak first into the water to snatch silversides, sand eels, and even squid and shrimp. Many images in this program have never been seen before. This wildlife adventure will provide an opportunity for questions and discussion about infrequently seen behaviors and life histories of our most graceful seabirds.
