The nice weather continues to be our friend, although this day started out quite overcast, normal Southern California Marine Layer. On this day, Thursday the 16th, it didn't burn off until about 4PM. As we pulled into the South Lot, we saw a sign which said the lot was closed for repairs, but it looks like that won't happen for another week or so, which was quite lucky for us. I have to check my book when I get home for exact ID's, especially on the Terns. There is an island built here specifically as a breeding site for the California Least Tern which is endangered. The first two shots were taken by Nancy. Feeding Godwits: Snowy Egret: And some of mine. Common Tern with an Itch: Black Skimmer, note that the lower bill is longer than the upper. This bird skims the water with the lower beak submerged to catch fish. Tern, one that I need to ID: Black Skimmer, skimming: Godwit in flight: Common Tern in flight: These terms are really tough to capture in flight. They are small and very quick. They were also quite close which made things even more difficult. Let me know what you think.
