Common Terns are listed as "Threatened" in New York State. This individual seemed quite comfortable on the fishing pier at Coney Island, although I don't think that they nest in this crowded section of Brooklyn coast. Most likely the terns seen feeding around Coney Island are from the breeding colonies across the bay at Breezy Point.
