This week we bring to you an amazing bird called an Inca Tern.
Inca terns have some of the most exceptional, refined mustaches similar to the Hungarian mustache style of humans. These mustaches can be found on both the female and the male birds. This bird is easily recognizable with its dark gray body, and red-orange beak and claws, and its perfect white moustache.
They are typically found on the Pacific coast from Peru to Chile and will breed on inshore islands and coastal cliffs.
Inca Terns feed on anchovies and other small fish as they feed by plunge diving and surface dipping. They will also scavenge scraps from sea lions, dolphins and fishing boats.
Unfortunately, their populations are declining quickly because of the loss of nesting sites. and declining fish stocks are another reason. They have been included in the “close to vanishing species” category. Inca terns in the wild live up to 14 years and in captivity up to 20 years.
