Forster's Tern at Lake Mendocino
- This morning (9/7) George Chaniot found a basic plumaged FORSTER'S TERN
at Lake Mendocino. He initially located the bird off the west tip of
the Mesa at 10:00. By the time I arrived the bird was south of the
Mesa. Ultimately the bird landed on a small island just off the west
tip of the long spit sticking out to the west well south of the Mesa.
When I left at 11:00 the bird was still roosting on the island.
