Fauna (I)

I still owe you the sheep, isn't it?

Sheep and no city

Some other animal also crossed my way recently.

Find the chick...

You see egg and chick of a Kría, probably better known as Artic Tern (and for the orthinologists Sterna paradisea)
This cute feather ball better grows up fast. It most likely will have to travel quite some distance soon. The Artic Tern's migration route almost spans from pole to pole. I recall to have read that their average yearly "mileage" is about 20.000 km (12.500 miles)
