I saw a Caspian Tern this morning around 11:00 AM. It was fishing & diving into the waters on both sides of the parking lot at the end of the road at Dead Creek (Brilyea). It was extremely large appearing, larger than a Ring-billed Gull & had a bright reddish orange bill.
Also saw a Great Egret at the same place.
I was looking for the Pied-billed Grebes that have been reported there, but I didn't see them.
