Forster's Tern ~ Went birding at Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve, and was happy to see two of these Forster's Terns.  I'd never gotten quite this close to one.  He is in his winter plumage, with the black bill and light head; breeding plumage will show an orange bill and a full black cap on his head.
