Aleutian tern

The Aleutian Tern is a seabird of the tern family Sternidae.

The Aleutian tern is classified as Least Concern. Does not qualify for a more at risk category. Widespread and abundant taxa are included in this category.

The Aleutian tern breeds only in Alaska and eastern Siberia, nesting coastally in dispersed colonies (North 1997). Their breeding range extends from southeast Alaska to the western Aleutian Islands and as for north as the Chukchi Sea. In Russia they breed in the Bering Sea, Sea of Okhotsk and the Kamchatka Peninsula. More

The Aleutian Tern nests in loose colonies sparsely distributed along the coasts of southern and western Alaska, including the Copper River Delta, and eastern Siberia. It often nests with Arctic Terns in Alaska and Common Terns in Siberia. It sometimes nests near Mew Gull colonies. Probably due to removal by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service of red fox and arctic fox, it now nests on 8 islands in the Aleutians. More

is known about the winter range, but observations of Aleutian terns in the waters around Hong Kong in the spring and fall, and around Singapore and the nearby Indonesian Island of Bintan in the South China Sea between October and April indicates that some birds migrates through and winter in these areas. The coastal waters of Java and Bali in this same region may also be part of their winter range. More
