Hey all, Today some members of the Blue Ridge Young Birders Club visited Mill Creek Lake looking for the Little Blue Herons reported earlier today. Sadly we did not get the LBHE's but we saw 4 distant birds out on the water. Three were Black Terns and above them was a Common Tern that was confirmed only when it landed and showed its distinctive black carpal bar. Baxter, Tucker, Max, Ezra, and I were very excited to see this bird as it is most likely a county record.
