Roseate Tern

This is a Roseate Tern. Primarily a tropical bird, staying in the warmer oceans.  I have never seen one before. This was the only one here so I assume he was a little lost.

This photograph was taken off a boat launch pier near the Charleston SC port. I noticed a fast bird diving with tern colors I did not recognize. The bill is jet black.
