Observation details

Went back for better looks at ARTE. Continuing bird previously reported this morning and yesterday. All features match arctic tern (bill size, shape, and color, head shape, tail length). There is a somewhat confusing dark carpal bar on the ARTE we photographed, but by my reading, non-breeding ARTE does have a carpal bar (supposed to be not as prominent as COTE) - although cap, leg, and bill color indicate breeding bird. Not sure what to make of this. Beautiful bird anyway!
