On my way home from work today, I stopped by Henricus Park in Chesterfield Co. to look for the Black Terns that were reported yesterday on the Richmond list-serve. I went over to the pond where the terns were yesterday. The pond is about a 1/4 mile down the Dutch Gap conservation trail which is behind the visitors center. You have to go up the hill to the right of the trail and look through a chain link fence. At 3 PM, there were 4 Black Terns feeding over the pond. I viewed them for about 15 minutes. Although the terns are mostly black, all 4 are in transition between alternate and basic plumage. Also, when I got home from work at around 3:45 PM, there was a single Miss. Kite hunting over the field across the street from my house on Smith Grove Rd, the same place that I saw 5 kites yesterday afternoon. Good birding. Adam D'Onofrio Dinwiddie Co.
