CASPIAN TERN, LAKE SAINT CLAIR METROPARK, MACOMB COUNTY, MICHIGAN, 24 AUGUST 2017

www.flickr.com/photos/snow-shadow/albums/72157685705327020
This juvenile Caspian Tern, still dependent on its parents, likely traveled at least 100 to 250 miles to Lake Saint Clair Metropark, Macomb County, Michigan. Thanks to my camera, I was able to read the band numbers of several Caspian Terns staging in the park in August 2009. All were banded before flight capability in June or July. As the crow flies from the park, their hatch locations range from 100 miles (Saginaw Bay) to 250 miles (St Marys River, UP; North Channel, Lake Huron, Ontario). The time span between various dates of banding and those of photos ranges from as little as one month to 12 years, 2 months. So much for parental feeding necessarily serving as evidence of local or regional breeding on Lake Saint Clair. Undoubtedly though, Lake Saint Clair Metropark serves as an important staging site or feeding hub for southbound migrants. Alan Ryff
