The White Tern is a small species of seabird that is found across tropical ocean habitats. White Terns have a nearly all-white plumage; only some feathers around the eyes are black.
The White Tern has an unusual breeding habit; it doesn't construct a nest. Instead, a single egg is laid on a bare tree branch, in a small depression or at a fork. Once hatched, the chick has to hang on to the branch as it grows.
