[Posting at the same time with Jane.]

Think it must be a Common Tern, though I'm not sure where the dark carpal bar is.

Best,
Jim

Perhaps an adult early into WP, or a 2nd year bird

Thank you!

What embarrassed me was the bill.

I think it is more likely that I'm just not very familiar with terns than American common terns are more thick-billed compared to the European :)
