The Arctic Tern
is an amazing bird that has amazing ways to live. For
example, they double their weight in summer time. They
hunt and eat things twice their size.
The Arctic Tern has a black head
and a white body. It has a wing span of about 4 feet.
The body itself is about 5 feet. The camouflage is
pretty good in the Antarctic for the Arctic Tern
because it blends in with the clouds or falling snow
from the sky.
Arctic Terns mostly feed on fish
and other animals that stick their heads out of the
water. When they head out to look for food and they
start to get tired, they land on icebergs. They lay
their eggs in between rocks. The only time they
migrate is in winter. Migration is when a animal moves
for winter. They migrate about 500 miles south. They
migrate so they don't have to try to survive the cold
The Arctic Tern is one of just
three animals that lives year round in Antarctica. The
others are the ice worm and the penguin. The Arctic
Tern lives in both the Arctic and Antarctic. It can
survive all year round in Antarctica because it has a
warm feather coat.
