Townsend S.L. - Sep 12, 12


Say WHAAT?! Birding?!

I checked out Port Dover... A few Caspian Terns were the highlight...

I also checked out Townsend Sewage Lagoons.. Highlight was 2 Eared Grebes:





One has been around for quite a while, but I think this is the first time this fall that 2 have been seen here...
