Forster's Tern

placeholder. there were definitely 6 small Sterna, and several were definitely Forster's, but i'm still not convinced that at least one wasn't a common.

3
Sterna sp.

At least one of these was almost certainly a common tern based on the pattern of black on the head and the prominent dark carpal bar, but the ID was made ex post facto, and the birds were never very close even when we were viewing them. A kind of embarrassing reminder of how far I've let me Sterna skills slip since moving to Oregon.
