When and Where to Look

Given how widely distributed and common Caspian terns are in North America, you generally don't have to go far to see them. Many breeding colonies are well known, and if you visit one that is viewable, you'll be assured hours of fascinating tern-watching. Migrants can turn up anywhere, especially east of the Mississippi River, and can be expected along any large river or lake. Harbors and shorelines along the Great Lakes are especially good places to find migrants.

The migratory peaks across much of North America tend to be April and May, and August and September. Many southbound adults are closely attended by juveniles, which are evident by their scalloped brownish back.
