Skimmers are another of the master acrobats. Like the Kite they catch prey on the fly, but they feed by grabbing small fish as they fly over the surface.
Above you can see a school of fish jump and scatter as the bird is spotted up above.
It’s like the surface of the water erupts when a Skimmer comes in low.
You might think of a Black Skimmer as a large Tree Swallow in their speed and actions.
Photographing these birds is all based on timing and your location in the path of their flight.
