44 Caspian Terns - Ten Mile
- Sat, 14 August 2010 -- While crossing the Ten Mile R. bridge today, I spotted a
large group of gulls and terns on the sandy, south shore west of the bridge.
With my scope I counted (3 times) a total of 44 CASPIAN TERNS, and over
60 CALIFORNIA GULLS. That is the largest group of Caspian Terns I have seen
in Mendocino County. That is probably not a record number of CATEs for MEN,
but it's more than I usually see on Ten Mile (river & beach). I checked
but there were only the two species present in the group.
