The Mau-o-ku

The Mau-o-ku or white tern has a dominate presence here on Midway. They are also called fairy terns for their habit of hovering in groups around people's heads.

The chicks don't have nests, and are found on tree branches, walls, ash trays....you name it. They sit and wait patiently for their parents to bring them food.
