Elegant Tern (Thalasseus elegans) - 03Sep2015

A more elegant version of the Royal Tern?  You decide.  Certainly the bill is more slender and some folks associate slender with elegant.  These were photographed in Moss Landing, CA where Elegant Terns and Royal Terns coexist.

Note the shaggier and thicker crest.
