Black Skimmers

Typical pictures of Black Skimmers are taken as they fly low over the surface of the water with their knife-like lower mandible slicing through the water in quest of sustenance.

This Black Skimmer with its brightly colored bill decked out in his black and white tuxedo sitting on the sand appears to be ready for a formal engagement. The green vegetation coupled with the yellow flowers completes this colorful beach setting.

This distinctive-looking coastal bird is always a pleasure to see and quite entertaining to watch especially as it feeds, skimming low across the water.
Mirror, Mirror on the Wall, who's the fairest of them all?

These guys are notorious for their aggression and disputes. Their ensuing aerial acrobatics are entertaining to watch as they chase each other barking all the while.

This the is the typical Black Skimmer image ... skimming low above the water with its lower mandible submerged in hopes of coming up with a little fishie.

Living in Louisiana is a treat, especially with the diversity of birds / wildlife around us to see and to experience.
