Black Fronted Tern

Tara

Sterna albostriata

I only see these birds in mid to late summer, and almost always as juveniles. And never more than a handful turn up. There will generally be at least two or three perched with the noticably larger white fronted terns on the rocks at the north end of Sydney Cove

Size 300 mm
