A Royal or Caspian Tern

Recommended Posts



Hello Whatbird,

     I am having difficulty with this tern.  It was among a group of Caspian.  It is the tern in front facing to the right with orange bill. It is different than the Caspians in the group.  I have had a few people say it was a possible juvenile Caspian and others have said Royal.  There was at least one Royal seen in the area, Bombay Hook NWR, Kent County, DE 8/17/2019

Thank you,

Nancy Erickson
