Black Skimmer Feeding, back lit
A seabird named Black Skimmer (Rynchops niger) feeding, flying just above the surf, the lower mandible extended to fish by feel. Recognize Black Skimmer from the colorful red of the base of the bill, note the lower mandible is much longer. Unless you beach walk early mornings, you will be most familiar with the habit of grouping together, facing into the wind. I captured this individual, a member of a larger group, just after sunrise, on Cocoa Beach. It was just me and the Skimmers.
