Elegant Tern at Lakeside Park, Tucson, Arizona

I often go off to faraway wilderness areas to photograph wildlife. Sometimes there won't be another human in sight --- for days. On the other hand, sometimes a "rare" bird finds its way to a local municipal park amongst fishermen, dog-walkers, picnickers, etc.

Lakeside Municipal Park is such a place. A couple of years ago it was a Brown Pelican, last year it was a White Pelican, this year it was -- still is an Elegant Tern.

Yesterday I saw the ET reported at about 1:30 in the afternoon (ABA Birding News). Christine and I were there by 2:00. We walked around the lake finding the tern after a half mile or so.
