Forster's Tern

I captured this Forster's Tern nesting in the Bolsa Chica Ethological reserve in Huntington, California. Typically associated with marsh habitats, Forster’s tern may be found in fresh, brackish or saltwater marshes, the marshy borders of lakes, islands or streams, and the marsh areas close to beaches and estuaries. It is generally found in the open, deeper areas of marsh, where it nests among floating and emergent vegetation.
