Chinese Crested-Tern

Thalasseus bernsteini (Schlegel, 1864)

The Chinese Crested Tern (Thalasseus bernsteini, syn. Sterna bernsteini - see Bridge et al., 2005) is a seabird of the tern family Sternidae, closely related to Sandwich Tern T. sandvicensis and Lesser Crested Tern T. bengalensis. It is most similar to the former, differing only in the bill pattern, which is the reverse of the Sandwich Tern's, being yellow with a black tip. From Lesser Crested Tern, which it overlaps in wintering distribution, it can be told by the white rump and paler grey mantle, as well as the black tip to the bill, which seen from up close also has a white point. The larger Greater Crested Tern is also similar, differing in the stouter, all-yellow bill and darker grey mantle and rump, as well as in size. Source: Wikipedia
