The river tern (Sterna aurantia) is considered to be a globally vulnerable species. It is a native breeding resident of eastern and central Pakistan, Pan India (except the Trans-Himalayan region), Bangladesh, Myanmar, Thailand and Cambodia. It is a non-breeding resident in Nepal, southern Bhutan, Laos and Vietnam with vagrant records from Afghanistan and Iran. It breeds on sandy islands in freshwater lakes and rivers, and rarely estuaries.
