Let’s Welcome the Least Terns

Last year’s couple (in archived photos) return within “homestead” scrape*, eastern tip of Elizabeth Field Airport runway.

As sunnier and warmer months unfold; PLEASE tread lightly!

*Least Terns nest in a simple “scrape” in sand, shell, or other fragmentary, sometimes lined with pebbles, grass, debris.
