Flock of birds around cruise ship at night - Royal Terns?

Recommended Posts

A large flock of birds kept up a constant banter around our ship throughout the night last night. It was way too dark and they weren’t close enough to see clearly, but they appeared to be white-ish. I recorded them (Dropbox link attached) in the hope that someone could ID



. Merlin identifies them as Royal Terns. Sure enough, I see there is a year-round population along the California coast south of Los Angeles where we are. Please have a listen and let me know if you concur. Thanks!
