There are three species of Crested Terns that can be found along the coast of Sarawak – Lesser Crested Tern, Great Crested Tern and the Chinese Crested Tern. The Chinese Crested Tern has not been sighted in Sarawak for over 80 years. It is most easily identified by the black tip on its yellow bill. The two other Crested Terns have plain-coloured bills. It also has lighter grey plumage and slightly smaller than the Greater Crested Tern. So look out for that black tip among the Crested Terns the next time you our out at the coast. You may just find a rare gem that all are looking for.”
