Black and Common Terns at Havey Ensign DNR Boat Launch

I heard yesterday from my birding compadres that Black Terns and Common Terns were at the Harvey Enisign Memorial Boat Launch… Both of these birds are seen every year in small numbers in the county, but do not breed here.. I was told that the Common Terns breed on some of the islands in Lk St. Clair and I know that Black Terns breed in St. Clair County.. This is the first time I have seen them migrating at the same time and hanging out together… They were not real close to shore when I got there, but it was still cool to sit and watch them feeding on the minnows and watch them following the boats as they came out of the marina…
