Description

A flock of gull-bird tern in adult breeding plumage circled me for several minutes calling loudly during a visit to Kaituna Lagoon end of Lake Ellesmere. Associating strongly with caspian tern and black-billed gulls. Interestingly their calling and circling behaviour was a virtual mimic of the caspian terns which had a breeding colony with young chicks present nearby to protect, something the gull-bills would not have had.
