Sterna bergii and Larus novaehollandiae
Crested Terns have a crest of black feathers on there heads and a pale yellow beak. There plumage is white, except for the wings which are grey. Silver gulls have a white breast with grey wings and a red beak and legs. You'll see these guys at practically any beach in Australia.
Crested Terns live in small to large flocks that sometimes have other species of seabirds living with them. Silver gulls can be found at practically any beach in Australia.
I only just noticed these guys mating! I'm pretty happy with this shot! Thanks to ChicquitaRajawali and Atul for pointing out a few mistakes.
