Caspian Tern range

The Caspian Tern is the largest member of the North American terns. This tern, which has a noticeably large orange bill, is seen right around the globe. In North America, the Royal Tern might be confused with this tern, because it also has a large orange-coloured bill. The Caspian Tern does not have a crested head. It is a native bird of Cuba.
