Elegant Extravaganza


This morning at high tide there were 400-500 elegant terns at Elsie Roemer Bird Sanctuary in Alameda. Another group of 200 co-mingled in air for a few minutes and flew south. Quite a sight to watch them all take to the air and then settle again. (No predators in sight.) I left at 9:30 and some were starting to move out to a sand bar further out toward Bay Farm Island.as the tide lowered and it was uncovered.
