Terns and Skimmers

Royal Tern, Black Skimmer

  Black Skimmer Facts:

  •  Did you know that Black Skimmers have bills like no other  American bird?  This unusual beak has a  lower mandible which is longer than the upper.  Black Skimmers drag their  lower bill through the water as they fly, skimming the surface attempting to catch small fish.
