BLACK TERN

Black Tern

Point Pelee National Park is one of the best locations in southern Ontario to see nesting Black Terns.  From the comfort of the floating boardwalk, visitors have the unique experience of observing a Black Tern nest up close – but be careful not to get too close – the parents are very protective of their young.

A small dark, graceful tern of freshwater marshes, the Black Tern eats insects as well as fish.

Adult Description
Small, dark tern.
In breeding plumage dark head and chest and gray wings are distinctive.
In nonbreeding plumage, head and underside white, wings gray, and dark spot behind eye and dusky crown and nape.

Immature Description
Similar to nonbreeding adult, but with pale scaling on back.
