Royal Terns

Royal Tern - Annual Whooping Crane Festival in Port Aransas, Texas

The Royal Tern has a red-orange bill and a black cap during the breeding season, but in the winter the cap becomes patchy. Enjoy the Royal Tern along the Port Aransas beach; it is only found where there is salt water. Feeding near the shore, close to the beach or in backwater bays, this shorebird is common year-round.
