Young Skimmers – part 2
I went back to Lido Key yesterday morning. Photographically it was pretty good. Otherwise, not so much. There were a lot of sand flies (noseeums) biting me and the humidity was very high.
I was able to get more photos of the immature Black Skimmers. They have become one of my favorite birds as I often see them away from the ocean. They come through some of the wetlands, flying low and dragging their beak through the water. And I find their call, a sort of barking noise, to be a bit funny.
