Marsh Terns

The marsh terns are typically found in freshwater marshes, rather than coastal locations.

There are four species:

  • Black Tern, Chlidonias niger
  • White-winged Tern or White-winged Black Tern, Chlidonias leucopterus
  • Whiskered Tern, Chlidonias hybridus
  • The Black-fronted Tern, Chlidonias albostriatus (formerly Sterna albostriata) is now also recognized to belong to this genus (Bridge et al., 2005).
