Terns Tonight

I went out to the beach tonight for sunset, first time in quite a while I'd been out there. Sunset was a bust, but I got some good bird pictures. I especially liked this picture of a tern landing among a group of other terns. Pretty lucky that the focus was on the right bird at the right time.

Are those chicks in the picture?

No, that's some other species of tern. Sandwich Tern, perhaps? Those are listed as pretty big in my book and these are small, but they have the yellow tipped beak.
