    Forster's Tern- Sterna forsteri
    Forster's Tern- Sterna forsteri, Order Charadriiformes, Family Laridae, Subfamily Sterninae. These terns were making the rounds at Acton Lake on this beautiful Sunday afternoon. Two of the finest bird enthusiasts I know had difficulty identifying the bird from the admitedly poor photographs. From Dave Russel "This week we have had Common, Forster's, Caspian, and Black Terns at Acton. This being said--because of some lesser characters that are not 100 % reliable I think it is Forster's Tern-- white not gray breast (light dependent), amount white between bill and black cap, orange not orange -red bill (also light dependent)." Casey Tucker thought it could go either way, but, at this point was leaning towards a Common Tern.

    "O
    ne of several medium-sized terns that appear similar in appearance, the Forster's Tern breeds primarily in marshes and winters along the coasts. The comma-shaped black ear patch in winter plumage is distinctive, but some other plumages are very confusing. Forster's Tern is the only tern restricted almost entirely to North America throughout the year."
