First came the alpha-male Red-winged Blackbird. Now, says Roy Woodford, "The one surprise [Monday] was some rather aggressive Forster's Terns (above). I counted six of them along the Marsh Discovery Trail … They weren't very happy with my presence (and I wasn't all that close). I took a few shots and quickly left …"
Roy adds: "It's pretty slow this time of year … but if you look hard enough, there are a few things around. There was an Eastern Wood-Pewee along Disposal Road … and a few Black-crowned Night Herons (below) along the Transco Trail."
