Along with 4 or more Mag. Frigatebirds, there is a collection of (at least) six species of terns being observed at Lake Long (a.k.a. Decker Lake) from the boat launch area. (9:45 - 11:45 a.m., and several birders still there when I left)
Black Tern - 12+ Forster’s Tern - 6 or so Royal Tern - 2 or 3 Sooty Tern - 1 adult (very conspicuous) Sandwich Tern - 1 ad. seen several times Caspian Tern - 1 made one pass then ??
We may be overlooking Common Tern but there were no obvious candidates.
