Media notes

3 small terns in this group have small dark bills and no carpal bar.

Observation details

In the field we identified at least one small tern we felt was Arctic, based on size of the bill, grayish body and lack of a carpal bar. As they moved around, we may have seen different individuals. We watched from 40 meters or so, from the far edge of the beach to the reef with binoculars and spotting scopes.
