Frank Holmes found 3 Least terns last week.  I'm wondering with the sandbars all under-water if these terns are nesting on a slag spoil in the steel mill.
 
Cloud cover provides better light at HS Lake, when searching for terns from the north end.
Here on remnant duck blind #5 a Black tern (R) with Forester's tern:

Here the Black with a Least tern:  Dang, they are small.

That was unfulfilling.  A front rolled by bringing on/off rain:

Finally the 2 Least terns began feeding:
