Just as we humans wait in designated areas of airports for connecting flights, so birds have their own transit lounges where they rest. Time for a little preening, gathering of breath, formulating plans, or just looking about.
At the port of Fremantle there are plenty of transit lounges, each a perfect size for one bird. From my observation, a flying-in bird will kick off a lounge-occupying bird. “You’ve had your turn, Tern. Hop it!”
Fly in, fly out.
I will be having a break from posting for the next two to three weeks.
