For more than twenty years the authors studied the complex breeding and social behavior of colonies of terns.
A significant dynamic of their social behavior is their “mobbing” behavior when they aggressively defend their nests against predators and will attack intruders, including human beings.
Analysis of this and other behaviors as they affect breeding and population provide fascinating insights in the study of birds.
