Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Small tern with a robust yellow bill. In the breeding plumage has an extensive black crown and small white forehead patch. In the nonbreeding season, the crown is white with a dark mask. Distinguished from Least Tern by the lack of a black tip to the bill and more extensive dark in the wings. Found along large rivers and lakes and seasonally on the coast.
