Bird Royalty

It was thought this was the largest tern in North America so it was given the name Royal Tern denoting its size, but it is actually the second largest tern after the Caspian. This particular bird should not be disappointed in this since somebody somewhere cares about this individual. Note the band around its leg, marking it as part of a study being done on these birds.
