Mouth agape, a Lesser Tern chick hungrily greets a fish-toting parent along the beaches at Lover's Key State Park.  Another chick from the same nest, sits at the base of a sign warning visitors to stay out of the nesting area.  Each chick is about the size of a ping pong ball.  Nesting shore birds at Lover's Key State Park are at record levels this year.  Michel Fortier/Staff
