    Details: Calling! ID'd first by voice and then seen, mediocre video clip obtained, digi-bin style. 5 Flying together at treetop level coming up from I-95, over boardwalk by visitor center and then exiting refuge over Darby Creek to the west/NW. Video clip obtained through bins but distant. ID'd by call first. Tone was in between Black Skimmer and Laughing Gull. Throaty, sarcastic sound. Semi two-noted, like when two words run together. 'Arrr-uh!' Bill thick, jet black, viewed in good lighting with sun behind me. Swollen look to the bill. Upper wing/mantle very very light gray. Larger than Forster's Terns. Closer to Caspian Tern in flight style and size. Very bouyant, easygoing flight. The call was the clincher, but I got a good look and just barely had time to get a video clip. Tony Croasdale and Matthew Halley missed the birds by 5 minutes with their birding posse.
