I was out but the water today, and there was a tern that flew by.
An elegant one at that.
They are new here, from Audubon...
Has increased and spread northward in California in recent years, first nesting at San Diego in 1959 and in Orange County in 1987. At the same time, has disappeared from some former nesting sites in western Mexico. Considered vulnerable because nesting is restricted to very few sites.
