Common Murres & Common Tern

Early Friday morning, July 1, two hours at La Jolla produced 5 separate southbound Common Murrres. July is often a very good month for them there. Also ca. 800 Black-vented Shearwaters.

On June 30, there was a (continuing?) one-year-old Common Tern in the sw. corner of South San Diego Bay. The first couple mid-sized flocks of migrant Western Sandpipers had returned.
