Observation details

Continuing bird found yesterday by Tony Metcalf. Spent most of its time perched on the mud in the pond closest to the first parking area (Walker ponds), flying occasionally. Small tern, pale gray back, white under parts, black crown with white forehead, yellow bill with black tip, and yellow legs and feet. In flight, showed outermost primaries black, creating a black leading edge to otherwise pale gray wing.
