Tern and Sandpiper.

Recommended Posts

Southern Ontario today.

1.Caspian Terns are the norm at this location (one at the adjacent pond), nothing else since 2016. I noticed this Tern as I was going through my photos after the fact and thought it looked more like a Common. Not sure how the different Terns get along together as I don't think I have seen different species together.

2. I thought I was getting the hang of at least some of the shorebirds but ended up second guessing myself with these.

Thanks.

PS. I've never seen so many Killdeer in one location before.

I'm getting a Caspian impression from that bird. Looks big and bulky. Those are Least Sandpipers.

Thanks @akiley. It was the shape of the black cap in particular that made me wonder. With the Caspian the lower line of the cap has usually seemed fairly horizontal and not so curved extending down the back of the neck. However as I said the Caspian is the typical resident here so ......

Thanks again.
