Jeff Denoncour of TTOR took Dorothy and Ed Monnelly to the end of the beach in his four-wheeler, and they invited me along to fill the 4th seat. Bird highlights were TWELVE black skimmers and 2 whimbrels. It was a great way to enjoy the beach and discuss the many changes to it over the years, and the perfect weather didn't hurt. But, alas, no terns whatsoever. At the end I spent a half-hour in the nearest dunes looking for songbirds, but the dunes were not very active in the NE breeze.
