At dusk, Rich Hanlon reported on Facebook with a video of the Tern Flying:
"All day long the white-winged tern received aggressive responses from barn swallows and cedar waxwings whenever it left it's perch to skim the surface for a drink or to hunt for flying insects (like dragonflies). In the evening, right at dusk, when the swallows left for the night and the chimney swifts came out to hunt over the water a different dynamic unfolded. The swifts seemed to accept the tern, rather than aggressive responses, the swifts seemed to accept the tern, and the tern seemed to move with the swifts, as together they hunted for flying insects in the most buggy areas close to the water's surface.”
