Larry H. in Joplin:

I enjoyed 20 Black Terns at the Turkey Creek WTF this morning.
Workers wanted to mow the dike, so I wasn't able to enjoy too long.
I always catch them at this time of year or a week earlier.  So, actually,
I wasn't too surprised.  But they're gorgeous every time I get to see them.

Historically I have found the Robbins and Easterla book very well done
and accurate regarding Missouri birds ' "Their Distribution and Abundance." 
'
Their Black Tern account is no exception.

Two Semipalmated Sandpiper, and of course all of the swallows and
CAGO with young, and Woodies was about it.  Nice day to be out.

Good birding,  Larry H.  Joplin (Jasper County) MO.
