It’s always interesting to watch Black Skimmers flying with their beaks skimming in the water. What’s more fun is to try to capture the action when they try to catch a fish. They will be flying along and all of a sudden their head will snap down when they feel a fish hit their beak. Grabbing the fish can be another story. Good times.
