Here in Ohio, birders are pretty excited to see Black Terns during spring migration. And we get really excited when these beautiful birds nest in the northern reaches of our state. So we thought that some of you might want to check out this article from Audubon magazine about Detroit Audubon’s project to conserve Black Terns nesting in southern Michigan. If you’re interested in seeing Black Terns for yourself, Lake St Clair an easy trip from central Ohio next May!
