  1. I would probably say Black Tern until it moved and I got better views….then I might change my mind and say Little Gull or stay with Black Tern šŸ™‚

    well its definitely a bird…

    Could be one of Andrews guesses…..but how about a Sabines…?

    My first impression was of a Black Tern, however I suspect it might be a young Arctic Tern due to the sharply marked black primary edge on the underwing.

    thanks guys- it was one of 2 1st winter Little Gulls another photo here http://birdingfrontiers.com/2011/09/13/semipalmated-sandpiper-2/

  5. Dang. I got it right! First-winter little gull.
    My husband Bill and I got the first of state record Little Gull for West Virginia, but it was taken as “hypothetical” because it was only documented by my life sketches. Pffft.

    that tail pattern was screaming at me too that had me thinking LG, but I went along anyway with my hunch!!
    Good fun though-thanks for posting it.
