It’s short notice, but I think this is a good time to organize a downtown Honolulu White Tern walk! Recent surveys in the area have turned up a number of great viewing opportunities for seeing eggs and chicks in various stages of development, some in very accessible locations for direct visual observation and photographing. If you’d like to see for yourself what the terns are up to downtown plan to meet in the grove of kukui trees at the intersection of Richards and Hotel streets this coming Saturday (July 22) at 10:30. We’ll be doing an orientation to tern monitoring at the same location starting at 9:30 - feel free to join us for that if you’d like to learn more about the White Tern Citizen Science project. We’ll then head out to see what it’s all about at 10:30!
The purple pin marks the spot where we'll gather to start the walk.
