Subject: Forster's Tern

 I was surprised to find a Forster's Tern at Cane Creek Park (Union County, NC) lake Thursday. It appears to still be in Basic Pumage. It was a breezy day, making it tough to get a good pic from a kayak but here's a decent pic:

 Other migrants over the last 2 days were White-eyed Vireo, Blue-gray Gnatcatcher, and Yellow-throated Warbler. A pair of juvenile Bald Eagles put on an air show as they squabbled/played a few days ago. The Purple Martins are gone, but not forgotten; I won't soon forget floating mid-lake with 2 dozen Martins feeding at lake level, often within a paddles-length of me.  It's a great time of year!!
