Imagine you are an American Avocet enjoying a quiet morning in the pond. A bit of feeding and then a little relaxation then a bit of feeding.

Then without warning a Forester’s Tern makes a sudden and unannounced and dramatic visit to your patch of the pond.

Looks like he got what he was after. Just a brief interruption of an otherwise peaceful morning.
