They came by the thousands for the lodging and liked the fishing from their waterfront penthouse.
“They” are those sleek, squawking Caspian terns that moved in on the roof of the Kimberly-Clark mill warehouse on Everett waterfront last year when the business closed down.
Joe Meche, former president of the North Cascades Audubon Society, monitored the colony for four and a half months and will give a talk about his findings at the April meeting of the Pilchuck Audubon Society, which the public is invited to attend.
The meeting will be held from 7 to 8:30 p.m. April 12 at the Everett Firefighters Hall, 2411 Hewitt Ave., Everett.
For more information about the meeting call 425-252-0926.
