Observation details

Resting high on beach with group of laughing gulls. Photos attached. Medium-sized tern (smaller than the laughing gulls, but larger than a least tern). Reddish orange legs. Black bill. Black stripe visible on folded wing. Appeared to have dark primaries. Perhaps transitioning between non-breeding and breeding plumage. This is my best guess for the identity. If this is not a common tern, would someone please let me know.
