Subject: Least Terns at LRAFB
After swimming laps at the base pool, we head to the ponds near the RV park
for a sandwich. There, we watch the resident birds, and usually, Least
Terns fishing in the pond and lake across the road.

Last year we were seeing 5 or 6 birds. However, this year, we saw 2 birds
earlier in the summer, but today, none. We noticed the water levels are
lower in the pond. I was wondering why the terns have left for good.
Anyone from LRAFB -especially the USDA wildlife expert--still monitoring
this listserv?
