Re: Common Terns, minor miscellanea

5:46 pm

At least 1 juvenile Common Tern continues at Emory Cove, as of this morning, on the mudflats in with a couple hundred Elegant Terns. First spotted by Sally Veach and Patti Langen. Scope required if looking from the Yucca that is 200 meters north of the parking lot for this hotspot. We ended up going another 200 meters north along the bike path to get better scope views. I recommend going early before the terns disperse and the heat distortion becomes bad.

Note that there is also an adult Gull-billed Tern with three young, and at least one juvenile Elegant Tern in the area, as well as a couple of Least Terns circling around.
