The morning was sunny, calm, and warm. We were rewarded with the sighting of a Western Grebe at the Viewing Station. At the Estuary we watched as a Northern Harrier searched the grasses for food. A few other highlights of the morning were the sighting of both Common and Caspian Terns, as well as a Wandering Tattler.
