The Sandwich Tern is one of the easier terns to recognize in North America. Its black-coloured bill with an ivory-coloured tip make it easy to identify. These terns are seen along the Atlantic coastlines, along the southeastern coastlines and right into eastern Texas. These terns are seen throughout the Caribbean islands and it is a native bird of Cuba.
