Last week, the first California Least Tern nests of the season were spotted at Lindbergh Field. A total of four nests were counted in the protected areas of the airfield. The airport’s environmental team reports that up to 80 Least Terns were observed at SDIA last week, courting each other and checking out the nesting areas.
The first nests of the season appeared last Thursday, May 12. Last year on May 12, the nest count stood at three.
