  8. Common/Forster's Tern

    Number observed: 3

    Details: Watched the group foraging and catching fish over the lake for 1.5 hours; constantly in flight, though at times coming close enough for very good binocular views, otherwise scope was necessary; medium-sized terns with black through and behind eye wrapping completely around to the nape (one bird very clearly bent head forward to scratch its head in flight revealing, after very careful observation, that the black was complete and thoroughly black, not gray/graying; bills tapering to a sharp point, solidly black and about half as long as the diameter of the head; primaries only slightly more gray than secondaries and uniformly so (no dark pigmentation of the edge of the primaries was observed, even from the various vantage points I had); no dark pigmentation observed in carpal region in flight; tail whitish, forked, and uniform in color; body white. Most features suggest FOTE, but black on head suggests COTE. Birds seemed to leave area around 11 AM flying south and/or west out of view, but would not be surprised if they returned.
