Arctic tern about to attack

This is what happens when someone gets too close to an arctic tern's nest, or spot. They get angry, scream, and usually try and attack you with their sharp beak!

Les sternes arctiques se mettent vite de mauvaise humeur en ce moment ! Dès que quelqu'un ou quelque chose approche de l'endroit qu'elles ont choisi comme nid, elles crient et attaquent à coups de bec !
