This morning (Tue Aug 26) George Chaniot, Chuck Vaughn, Art Morley, and
I observed the immature LEAST TERN continuing at Virgin Creek Beach.
The bird was flying along the beach as we walked up and could clearly be
seen from the footbridge over the creek. The bird repeatedly flew in
over the sand and then out over the ocean but always stayed north of the
creek. We watched the bird from 0800 - 0840. The bird disappeared at
one point for about 10 minutes but reappeared along the beach as we were
leaving. There were also four SNOWY PLOVERS present. Good birding.
