Royal Tern? Punta Cana, DR (1 Viewer)

Royal Terns abounded there, but this particular one seems to have a reddish bill, rather that the typical yellow one found in Royal Terns.
What do you think?
Thanks!

Thank you, Steve, Microtus and Butty!
Just for comparison, this third picture is from a different bird in Punta Cana, clearly showing a Royal Tern revealing a thicker yellowisher bill, am I mistaken?
