Observation - Common Tern, juvenile and adult, Grafham Water, 2014-08-14 002. Description: Several young Common Terns, quite capable flyers, but still sitting on or near the shore waiting to be fed. It seemed to me that the adults were flying close to them, teasing them with fish; tempting them and encouraging them to follow and start fishing

Several young Common Terns, quite capable flyers, but still sitting on or near the shore waiting to be fed. It seemed to me that the adults were flying close to them, teasing them with fish; tempting them and encouraging them to follow and start fishing for themselves. Or am I anthropomorphizing?
