I'm thinking Forster's Tern

Recommended Posts

Cool picture!

Yes, these are Forster's Terns. The adult does not have a gray breast, has an orange bill (Commons have a more reddish bill), and has less black on the wing. The fresh juvenile has a black "mask," and this black does not extend to the nape as a Common fresh juvenile would have. Also, Forster's juveniles are lighter brown than Common juveniles.
