  26. Number observed: 1

    Details: First seen around 2:40. It was seen on the NE island of the pond where the Least Terns nest. It was with both Elegant Terns and Forsters Terns. It was slightly larger than Forsters and somewhat smaller than the Elegant. It was in adult plumage. The bill was sightly slimmer and slightly shorter than the bill of an Elegant Tern. It also didn't appear to be as decurved. The bill is black with a yellowish tip. It had a black cap with a rather short black crest. Unlike the longer crest of the Elegant Terns. The rest of the upperparts were light gray. The underparts were white. The deeply forked tail was about the same length as the primaries. The bird was not seen in flight so the extent of the dark on the primaries is unknown. It was also not heard.

    EBRPD would prefer that I don't publicize the exact location of a rare bird. But if it can be seen from the outside that is listed as the location. When I saw the tern I was inside Hayward Marsh only 20-25 yards from it. I was working on the Colonial Bird Survey for SFBBO.
