Large-Billed Tern
Family: Laridae Species: Phaetusa simplex
Length: 43 cm. This species is found along the shores of the Amazon River and its major tributaries. A bird of solitary habits, it also can be seen in pairs, sometimes forming flocks to rest or spend the night. It breeds in colonies, often surrounded by other species, and lays its eggs in the sand during the dry season, when the water level is low. It is found along the coast outside mating season. Its Brazilian names are trinta-ris-grande, gaivota and al (indigenous name in Mato Grosso).
