Tern, Least (Provincial Rarety)
-Sterna antillarum (Lesson)
A tiny tern similar in general colouration to the much larger Common Tern, but in breeding plumage bill and legs are orange-yellow, and the black cap has a large white forehead patch, leaving only a narrow black bar between eye and base of bill.
