Common Terns (Sterna hirundo) are a cute welcome party when I emerge from a dive near Sibu Island, Malaysia. Although they're considered a separate species, terns are somewhat related to gulls, skuas, and auks. Their distribution is very wide and encompasses all of our planet's oceans. The Arctic terns - close cousins to the birds in this picture - will travel from the northern polar regions where they breed, all the way down to Antarctica. They return to the Arctic before winter sets in the Southern Hemisphere. The return trip is well over 30,000 Km.
