It’s always amazing how much a storm will shake things up–regular birds disappear for awhile, new birds show up. Above, a group of Common Terns, a bird group which I haven’t seen very much of on this part of Clear Lake, suddenly showed up on Point Hilton. The regulars will slowly make their way back, and the newbies will disappear again.
I have received more information tonight about the posted signs placed on the marina property. Have it on good authority that the signs went up because of damage found to some of the boat trailers which are stored on the property. Even so, it still feels uncomfortable walking there with the signs screaming at you, but must admit it is getting easier to ignore the signs nowadays.
