Default What bird is this

After freezing in NYC and Frankfurt for the last 2 weeks, I decide to look at some warm weather photos. Hoping to get my mood up, because it has been a very cold winter thus far. I came across this photo of this bird I took, not sure what it is. But looking at tropical photo in the dead of winter in the cold just makes me to take a quick weekend trip to a warm place.

Looking in the Peterson Field Guide, it looks like a Royal Tern.

Thanks GW,

Coming form you about bird photos means allot. I know I do not have the eye for really good bird shooting. Just when the occasion arrises, I look out at times.
