As of 10:00 AM, Monday August 14, the white-winged tern visiting Lake Nessmuk has not been observed. Most likely it spent a couple of days recuperating from a long flight and then continued its migration south. Local birders are checking out several lakes and other wetlands, but so far without success. It was very exciting and gratifying to have this visitor for as long as it stayed. More than 300 people were able to see it and watch it in action. We would like to thank the many people who came to see the bird and visit our community, and we hope they enjoyed their brief stay here.
