Forster's Tern

Forster's Terns probably nest irregularly in Mississippi. Toups and Jackson* speculate that the Pascagoula River is the most likely place to find this species breeding. BBS records show some records for Mississippi with the Louisiana/Texas border being a center of breeding activity (http://www.mbr-pwrc.usgs.gov/id/framlst/i0690id.html) This species was observed at English Lookout.
