SDIA ‘goes to the birds’

There have been some special bird sightings at San Diego International Airport (SDIA) recently — and not the mechanical kind.

Endangered California least terns have been nesting again in the ovals on the airfield, like they do every spring at SDIA.  In fact, the babies have begun to hatch! Check out this photo that Roy in Information Technology took of one of the first baby birds:1st least chick

Some even more unusual visitors came through the airport earlier this month – penguins!  These cool customers stopped by on June 1 to welcome international travelers from Canada on the inaugural WestJet flight from Calgary.dos penguinosmary

The penguin ambassadors hail from Sea World, one of San Diego’s top tourist attractions.  More than 250 penguins live right here in San Diego at Sea World’s Penguin Encounter.  These particular fellows are warm-weather Magellanic penguins, a species native to South America.

You just never know who you might see at SDIA!
