Sooty Tern (Sterna fuscata)

This artwork & color palette is based on a true power-napper. Texas' Threatened Bird- The Sooty Tern apparently sleeps on the wing...

These impressive threatened birds spend the vast majority of their life at sea (apparently up to 10 years!). Since they don't float, and can't rest easily. I have read that they take micro-naps (1 or 2-seconds) while flying. #momgoals
