Birds of Namibia
Introduction: Arctic terns (Sterna paradisaea) inhabit deep sea areas singly or in small flocks, only usually venturing inland when exhausted or injured.
Diet: Forages offshore (occasionally inshore) by hovering and shallow plunge-diving on or close to the surface for small fish and crustaceans.
Description: Paradisaea is Latin for 'of paradise', a reference to their 'delicate plumage colouration' and 'buoyant flight'.
Breeding: Non-breeding migrants with pairs bonding and courting taking place from late September to November.
