It is a Tern of some sort. Where are you located? It will help with the ID.

It is a juvenile Caspian Tern. Note the pattern on the secondaries, the full black cap (most terns have lost a full cap at this time of year), the color and size of bill and the jizz is more gull-like. Nice shot.

I found it near north Washington. Close to Canadian border.

Thanks Ihoy. I begin to notice flocks of them coming here near the end of summer.

There was thousands nesting in Bellingham this year. Probably one from that flock.
