"Black Skimmers Take Off on Cape Canaveral Beach" by Catherine Sherman.
Black skimmers take off in a huge flock on Cape Canaveral Beach, Florida, in early morning.
The Black Skimmer is known for its skimming habit, furrowing the water with lower mandible, the upper mandible snapping down immediately when contact is made with a fish. The black skimmer finds food by touch, not by sight; often forages in late evening or at night, when waters may be calmer and more fish may be close to surface.
