An unexpected turn of events led to an outstanding Tern day at Breezy Point 

In total, I had 4 ( are reading this correctly) ARCTIC TERNS.

Two 1st Summer and two 2nd Summer types. With one 2nd Summer bird more advanced 
than the other.   I uploaded a few phone scoped photos and provided links for 
those interested.

Not since a few summers ago when I had 5-6... perhaps more, Arctic Terns at 
Moriches have I had such fun.

It required a lot of patience but after spotting one 1st Summer bird Arctic 
feeding offshore, I settled in and tried my best to track the Terns that cycled 

There were good numbers of Roseate Terns as well. A total of 15 birds with 11 
on the beach at one time while the others were feeding offshore.

Eleven 1st Summer Common Terns were good study candidates along with few 
similarly aged Forster’s Terns.
