The probable Breeding of the Aleutian Tern in Southeastern Alaska

Aleutian Tern (Onychoprion aleuticus) Science Article 2


A record in the May, 1920, number of THE CONDOR (page 111) of the probable breedingof the Aleutian Tern near Yakutat appears to rest on ‘sight’ identification only, andthe actions of Mr. Walker’s birds were so different from the usual habits of this speciesthat 1 am forced to doubt if the birds seen really were Aleutian Terns.
