New Bird Photographed – Common Tern

Local Exploration

Common Tern Common Tern

Connecticut continued to be a great place in May to look for new species I’ve never seen before.

At the Coastal Center at Milford Point, I found a mixed flock of shorebirds and terns sitting just off shore.  Many of them were new sightings for me (more on that later), including this common tern.  This tern was a little bit bigger than the least terns, plus the beak and legs were a little more red.

The tern only stayed around for a little while, and it was the only one I saw during my visit.  Sometimes though, that’s all you need!
