An arctic tern swoops down toward Stephen Kress as he leaves Eastern Egg Rock on Monday, June 22, 2015. Kress, an ornithologist with Cornell University, has spearheaded the 42-year effort to reintroduce puffin bredding colonies to Eastern Egg Rock. The terns swoop threateningly at people when they travel through the birds’ nesting areas on the island. (Photo by Gregory Rec/Staff Photographer)
