18. Royal Tern-Vyn-000101-0059-1.tif
An Oiled Royal Tern (Sterna maxima) fledgling stands on oiled rocks begging to be fed in a nesting colony on Queen Bess Island. This bird has little chance of survival as its feathers are too damaged to permit it to feed itself at sea. Barataria Bay, Plaquemines Parish, Louisiana. July 2010.
