7/12/16 - West Haven, Sandy Point, 4:00 pm.  Caspian Tern hanging out with Common Terns on disappearing distant sandbar as tide was coming in.  Much larger than Commons with large, red bill.  Good looks at black wing patch under primaries when it flew around Morse Point.  A few poor photos will eventually appear on eBird.  Also, a Spotted Sandpiper nervously herding a brood of 3(at least) hatchlings on the lagoon side of Morse Point.  The little fur balls pump their tails just like the grown-ups.
