I was fishing Thurs eve in PI Sound. I had been attracted by the activity of some terns at the top end of the incoming tide. They got it right, first fish I've caught in the sound in weeks. Just 3, one at 20", one at 16", and a micro. Oh well, better than nothing. But on this night, I witnessed the terns doing a behavior that I have never seen before in my 11 years of fishing this river/bay system (I've logged alot of hours). One tern would catch a bait fish (perhaps 1" long), and then that term would land on the water and be joined by another. There was a very polite, quiet, handoff of the bait from one bird to the other. This was not a competitive thing. It seemed mutual - as if the birds were cooperating to feed the family??? I would have dismissed it, but I saw it happen at least five times, and once or twice of those was out over the sand bars at Sandy Point (where I caught another micro). Anyone else ever seen this?? I am going to run it by a friend who knows alot more about birds than I do. Will post what/if I find out.
