After publishing so many large tight flocks of the Skimmers lately I have been meaning to give an updated look at individuals skimming for fish.
The unique bill of the Skimmer can be seen here which allows them to ‘snap’ up small fish.
These just give a little perspective on what actually is in those large flocks.

They look like they would be pretty fast birds. They’re beautiful.
They are beautiful, and fast. It’s very impressive to watch them glide along the waters surface.
