Observation details

First impression was Arctic. Loafing on south pilings with Sandwich Terns. Short legs, slight bill with dusky tip, dark loral area, trim black trailing edge to wings. Tail equal to or slightly longer than primaries. Photos confirmed by Alex Lamoreaux (thanks!). Several weeks of persistent east winds have brought a number of recent ARTE sighting to FL's east coast and this bird to the islands.
