On May 4, 5 and 6, I observed these Caspian Terns on the Indian River at Keene. They were north from the bridge on County Road 2, near where the Old Mill once stood. I managed to get a few photos, although from quite a distance. They look to be two pairs in breeding plumage. I was wondering if they are becoming more common in the area as I have never seen them before.

Note: Caspian Terns are indeed becoming much more common in the Kawarthas and may be nesting here.
