In the Book of Job we are instructed to, "Ask...the birds...and they will tell you." In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus said, "Look at the birds." So let's ask the birds, and look at the birds, and see what they have to say. May God bless you in your quest! Bill Bossman

Terns Take Turns
For the past few weeks, people have reported seeing terns on Discovery Island, a little sandbar island in the Missouri River in Pierre. However, every time I have stopped for a look, there were no terns there. I was in a hurry yesterday afternoon, but because it was raining, I decided to stop for a look. THERE THEY WERE! I found a Caspian Tern and two Forster's Terns, my first terns of the year. Sometimes I think rain is the key to a good birding day. It may be just before rain, just after rain, or right in the middle of rain... but rain usually brings me success.
