Herb Elliot and I had a juvenile back tern at the Santa Maria River estuary this morning, both in SB and SLO counties. It’s likely this is the same tern from Oso Flaco Lake the past couple days – it is in the same plumage and we heard one negative report of any black tern sighting at Oso Flaco this morning. Will upload some photos to eBird soon.
