Least Terns, Farm Island
Hughes County, SD
June 8, 2015
The terns are foraging in the marsh and in Hipple Lake. They are also carrying
food back to the island by the boat ramp, so there is probably a nest somewhere
I saw three Least Terns at one point in time this morning.
A Least Bittern was calling in the marsh while I was photographing Least Terns.
Some have a black bill tip.
Juvenile Broad-winged Hawk
White throat with thin middle stripe and lack of pale wing crescents
rules out juvenile Red-shouldered Hawk.
