      Black skimmers have finally arrived on the north coast. Matt Wachs found two
      birds (a pair of adults, one male and one female based on size) both banded,
      at the mouth of the Elk River in Humboldt County. The birds were associating
      with the tern and gull flock at the mouth of the river. To reach them, take
      Hilfiker Road west towards the bay off of Highway 101 in south Eureka. Look
      across the river to the north of the old pipeline at the end of the spit.

      Obviously we were wondering where the birds had come from. Does anyone know
      offhand who is banding skimmers in California?


      Thanks in advance for any info, and apologies for the cross-posting.
