This was my first time to both see and photograph a tern in this area and I haven't seen any since. I'm still not certain about the exact species so if anyone who is more familiar with terns knows, please feel free to comment. *Update: Thanks to several people (Pamela, Andrea, Liz, and Stewart) we'll call this a Caspian Tern. I appreciate the help!
