The unsuspecting victim descendsas usual upon his prey, only to meet instant death by theshock of his impact with the board. Those who talk gliblyof identifying birds by their flight may point to this wonderfuldiver as a case in point. But while one may often see thegannet on the wing, it is by no means so often that one willhave the good fortune to see him dive, for he is not alwayshungry. His white body, pointed tail, and black quill-feathers would then enable the novice to name him at once.But—^in his immature plumage, he would, at a little distance,appear black, and unless he were fishing, the chances ofrecognition would be by no means great. Close at hand hewould appear speckled with white. But this by the way. There are two other birds whichdive from a height on the wing. One of these is the king-fisher : the other is the tern. The term tern is here used 30Text Appearing After Image:collectively, for there are several species, but all have thishabit of diving from a height. During the summer monthsone may be quite sure of an opportunity of watching thegraceful, easy flight of at least three species. For they hauntthe sea-shore, river, and lake with equal impartiality. Thosewho are on the lookout for terns, for the first time, will easilvrecognize them. For, in the first place, they look like minia-ture gulls, but with longer and more pointed wings, andforked tails. Further, all have a characteristic black cap.They travel in small parties, as if for company, keepmg nomore than a yard or two from the surface of the water, andscanning it eagerly in search of shoals of small fish, orCrustacea. As these are found one will note a quickeningof the wing-beat, and a sudden dive, like that of the gannet,with half-closed wings. And sometimes, too, the impetuswill take them completely under water. 31 /Note About ImagesPlease note that these images are extracted from scanned page images that may have been digitally enhanced for readability - coloration and appearance of these illustrations may not perfectly resemble the original work.
