Common Tern

There was a common tern at the Tijuana River Mouth this morning. I believe we also saw it last week, when we briefly saw a tern with a black-tipped red beak, but didn’t have time to note any additional marks, so did not report it as such. But this time I was able to get a picture.

I think that it is probably not a Common Tern, but a Forster’s. I didn’t realize Forster’s also had red legs.
