A Little Tern (Sterna albifroms) feeds its rather large chick in Incheon, the third largest city in South Korea.   It is native to tropical and temperate areas of both Europe and Asia.   The Small Tern is well-named as it measures just under 10" or 25 cms. in length.   See photo at right of a Little Tern in front of two Crested Terns, for a size comparison.
