Bridled Tern

Identified by several in our party. Differentiated between the Sooty terns as these had much more white on the tail feathers and grey coloring on the back.

1
Common Tern
1
Arctic Tern

Saw the bird with Zach Millen. Comments from his sighting: "First impression was Arctic. Loafing on south pilings with Sandwich Terns. Short legs, slight bill with dusky tip, dark loral area, trim black trailing edge to wings. Tail equal to or slightly longer than primaries. Photos confirmed by Alex Lamoreaux (thanks!). Several weeks of persistent east winds have brought a number of recent ARTE sighting to FL's east coast and this bird to the islands."
