This is just for fun and the only rule is:  no researching.  Post your best guesses on this obviously awesome animal in the comments.  Reading other people’s answers before posting your own is obviously not awesome optional.  Answer will be posted in the comments tomorrow.

  10. ANSWER TIME

    This animal is an Inca tern. From Wiki:

    The Inca tern feeds primarily on small fish, such as anchovies. The species spots its prey from the air, diving into the water to grab meals with its pointed beak.[2] Its call is a cat-like mew.
