Observations of the Bridled Tern.. The bird would flush from the Jetty and fly back and forth along the West side of the Island (it did this often). The bird would periodaclly land along the shoreline on debris or rocks primarily North of the Jetty but always seemed to return to the Jetty at some point. Sometimes the bird would land out of view on the East side of the Jetty rocks. If we did not keep eyes on the bird, it was easily lost among the thousands of Terns. Once the bird would fly over the island heading east, the bird would not reappear for sometime. If the bird is not on the Jetty, it's worth scanning the shoreline North of the Jetty specifically.
