Aleutian Tern Sterna aleutica Vagrant
A thunderstorm had brought in Terns as we were waiting for the Supercat fast ferry,which was delayed due to the same storm. Plenty time to watch the Terns. Whiskered, White-winged, Common and some of the guests claimed a Gull-billed Tern. Need to check that out. Gull-billed, while not impossible would be odd. The bird returned for another close fly-by. It didn’t fit. Immediately clear. I’ve seen 1000s Gull-billed in Thailand. One of the guests was keen enough to note the funny pattern on the underwing. Sure enough the dark trailing edge on the underwing is a distinctive ID feature for Aleutian. We never confirmed ID of this bird on the spot but photos from OBI later checked on show perfect match. Non-breeding plumage.
