Comments:

Species
5 species (+1 other taxa) total
2

Mixed in with group of terns feeding. Both appeared to be immature due to lack of visible white forehead. Did have very good look at underwing and clearly saw the two toned dark flight vs. covert feathers.

4

Group of 15 terns feeding over false albacore. There were several species of tern present and I had trouble IDing them. There appeared to be a few imm. SOTE but also a BRNO. Most of the terns did not fit the typical adult plumage which added to my difficulties..

1

In mixed tern flock feeding on false albacore. Appeared that several were juveniles. Saw white speckling on dorsal, combined with white neck. Not as dark as SOTE.

6
Sterna sp.

All mixed in with feeding flock of terns of several species. These were very light terns with white below, black caps.
