first of season gull-billed terns
Yesterday morning, Kate Goodenough, Dalia Ruiz, I and others observed two gull-billed terns over the South San Diego Bay NWR saltworks. Although this species is common from late March to early August around San Diego Bay tidal flats and adjacent scrub, and along beaches and adjacent open habitats from the Mexican border to the mouth of San Diego Bay, it is rare elsewhere in San Diego County, so please post any sightings on the coastal slope away from the above locations.
