Observation details

Two largish terns flying in strong wind above pond for about 15 minutes before they flew off (didn't see which direction). Long thin orange bills, paler at tip, slightly down-curved. Full black cap ending in point at nape. White forked tail. Vocalization was a sharp "kee-rick". See photos.
