Hold The Ketchup!

I was sooooo excited when I finally laid eyes on a Sandwich Tern with its mustard-tipped bill.
To me, the history of their name makes them that more special & adds to their cuteness!
The tern is named for the Sandwich Islands (as Captain James Cook named them), now known as the Hawaiian Islands.
Both the islands & the sandwich were named for the Earl of Sandwich (one of Cook's financial backers & a fan of meals between bread slices).
