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!
Smaller gull/tern looking bird, dark, "batty" flight, low over the water. A phone call over to the DEC on Morgan Rd helped me figure out the ID!
