I was at the Montezuma main pool today and saw 2 BLACK TERNS flying in the back of the main pool along with Caspian Terns. Later I stopped by VanDyne Spoor Road because that is where I usually spot them, but they weren’t there yet. Good birding, Ann Sent from my iPhone -- Cayugabirds-L List
Hi all, During an Audubon van tour yesterday, 6/7, we observed several black terns swooping and feeding above the water at the "Crane Unit" on the end of VanDyne Spoor Rd in Montezuma National Wildlife Refuge. I didn't know immediately what they were, and was happy to add them to my life list!
FYI folks. While performing my duties as a roving naturalist at the Montezuma National Wildlife Refjge yesterday I saw two black terns. TONS of Great Blue Herons and lots of eagles. Very few shorebirds - a spotted sandpiper, both flavors of yellow
There were 6 Black Terns at Stewart Park this morning. They were far to the north, visible through a scope but not with binoculars. Other highlights included a juvenile Black-crowned Night-Heron, 3 flyby Semipalmated Sandpipers, and a Yellow-rumped Warbler. Complete list here:
2 flying around. Tons of swallows too. Lots of waterfowl. Gulls. Etc. Need more than one set of eyes! Sent from my Verizon Wireless BlackBerry -- Cayugabirds-L List Info: http://www.NortheastBirding.com/CayugabirdsWELCOME http://www.NortheastBirding.com/CayugabirdsRULES
Four Black Terns flew over the Mays Point Pool this afternoon about 2pm while Bud and I were watching a female Wood Duck herd 8 ducklings through the weeds. Gorgeous, even in lousy weather! At Montezuma's visitor center we were skunked by the Godwit, which probably had more sense than we did
