I'm really not sure on this. The primaries look darker than the back and the bill looks somewhat longer than an Arctic. The tail is kinda hard for me to judge. The black cap does seem extensive and rather close to the gape. Could you tell if there was a black tip to the bill?
Between Arctic & Common. BTW, a friend of mine had an Arctic Tern on LBK about a month ago. Send your pics to Stu Wilson , firstname.lastname@example.org and see what he thinks. Let me know email@example.com
I'll be interested to see your posts on PN. I'll try to look up your moth pretty soon. I'm wondering if I have ever met you. Glad you're into birding in Sarasota; perhaps I'll see you in the field!
Thanks for the comment, that's very kind.
