I think the good weather and the wind carried the shorebirds out'a here. Not
one peep, not even a Killdeer at Riverlands Heron Pond today. Never have
seen that before, always at least one stray.

One fresh juvenile Forster's Tern and adult and juv Caspian Tern at Teal
Pond.  Adults still feeding the juv.
