We had one new species in the August count. Two juvenile Gull-billed terns were seen on Sunday August 2nd.
This brings our cumulative total species, over 10+ years of the count, to 246 species. All of the Least Tern fledglings have now departed the nesting sites, that brings the total to 10 chicks. We wish them a safe journey and hope to see them back next year.
