Help with Terns


Recommended Posts

I saw these birds at the Chincoteague Nature reserve earlier this week. I know I see forsters terns, and least terns, but I'm not sure of the other terns. Are they all royal terns? Is there any other tern here? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

What about the second bird from the right in the first pic? that bird seems to have a black bill and seems bigger than the forster's..

That is a Forster's. The birds surrounding it are Least.
