Tern


Recommended Posts

Forsters have thicker bills and longer tails but most helpful if you see them fly - Common have black on wings. If they are in non-breeding plumage, as these should be, Forsters black head patch still covers the eye but the common black patch looks more like it is on the back of the head behind the eye. I still have trouble with this too. I'm told it gets easier with practice and time.
