After much consultation, the team has identified the Chinese crested tern nest where they will attempt a capture. The terns no longer fly away as the team works, but hover and screech overhead. Many do not even take flight. Walking to the nest is like tiptoeing through a minefield, where a single false footstep could spell disaster for eggs and chicks as well as the researchers. They remain sure-footed and calm throughout the process, finding the gaps between vulnerable life.
