Hi Tweets,

Heather and I had an amazing 42 Black Terns at Sprague Lake in Adams County today. The wind was blowing from the east and they were all in the SW corner of the lake along with about 100 Am White Pelicans. Usually we’re happy to find 1-3 in the farthest NW corner of the lake at the end of scope range. Today they were feeding right of the observation kiosk and by far the most we’ve ever seen in WA.

The only place we’ve seen more was in January 2016 in the bay at Mazatlan. We had 70 feeding in close off the beach and we’ve not seen them in the bay since then.

Good birding,

Marcus Roening
