Elegant Terns breeding in Alameda County

Hey all

Certainly hard to keep track on birds from other Bay Area counties. Elegant Terns were confirmed with ( 15 ) incubating eggs 
during the summer of 2019 at the Don Edwards NWR near the Dumbarton Bridge in San Mateo County by Peter Metropulos
and the staff of SFBNWR. On June 11 of this month Gerry McChesny had ( 12 ) Elegant Terns with ( 4 ) 3/4 grown chicks
and ( 31 ) on nest at the Don Edwards NWR in San Mateo County. The Elegant Terns are nesting near Caspian Terns.
Exciting for both counties!
