This set contains photos of thirteen presumed Elegant Tern (Thalasseus elegans) x "Cabot's" Sandwich Tern (Thalasseus sandvicensis acuflavida) hybrids from San Diego County, California. Twelve are of adults and one is of a juvenile bird. The set also contains shots of two different "Cabot's"-type adults (end of the set). Currently the California BRC does not accept these birds as pure "Cabot's" Terns due to possibility of Elegant influence.
