Sandwich tern (Sterna sandvicensis)

“Sandwich” refers to Sandwich, Kent, England where they were first described and classified by ornithologist John Latham in 1787.

These are the most common individuals in that picture, a white and gray bird with black legs, black on the back of its head, and a deep orange bill.

If your bill looks like it was dipped in mustard, you're a Sandwich Tern.
