Subject: [obol] Elegant Terns
Elegants seem to be coming north in very low numbers this year. In August
Crescent City only has three reports on eBird- two singles and one of a few
birds. No south coast records in OR. Three north coast records- all single
digit or heard only. Just letting folks know- those smaller Sterna terns
may more likely be Commons than Elegants this year unless something changes
soon. Last few years that have been hundreds of Elegants in Crescent City
even in July and hundreds also on the southern OR coast by now.

Happy birding!
