[Sooty and Bridled Terns]

Marathon Hump (Florida Keys), FL, June 26, 2004

Larry Manfredi took a very similar photo and was using it on the boat to point out the differences between the Sooty Tern on the top and the Bridled Tern on the bottom. Notice the amount of white in the tail, the white collar of the Bridled Tern and the lighter mantle and head/back contrast of the Bridled Tern.
