Taxonomy

The taxonomic status is pending for approval

Description

The seabird species, commonly known as Bridled Tern belongs to family Laridae. It can be measured about 36 cm in length. This species can be distinguished from other terns by the blackish upperparts and wing coverts, white collar (separating black cap) and underparts, with a long and forked tail. Like the Black-naped Tern (S. sumatrana), this Bridled Tern also breeds in colonies on remote offshore islets. It is fairly common off Pulau Tioman and may often be seen on boat rides to and around the island (Strange & Jeyarajasingam, 1993).
