The roseate tern is distinguished from the common terns in the lower right photo by the longer wings and the long tail streamers (center bird). The pair in flight was at Maziwe (11-17). The middle photo (Tanga, 8-17) is courtesy of Per Holmen. The bottom photos were also taken at Maziwe: click the right photo to see 11 enlargements of breeding and non-breeding adults and a juvenile.
