White-winged Tern: a rare visitor from across the Atlantic

A White-winged Tern was observed from August 11 - 13 at Nessmuck Lake, near Wellsboro, PA. I drove up there Sunday morning, arriving at Noon and stayed until 2:30pm watching and photographing the bird. Approximately 20 or more birders were sharing the view from the lake shore, including a couple who had driven up from Washington D.C. to see the tern.
Images were made with an Olympus EM-D EM-1 Mark II and an Olympus 40-150mm f2.8 lens with a 1.4x tele-extender.
