Black Skimmer,   Photo Image # BLSK 177

What a fascinating and graceful bird to watch, as this photo shows an adult Black Skimmer flying with its knife-edged lower mandible submerged in the water.  When this Black Skimmer feels something in the water when it's skimming, it will snap its head down and hopefully clamp onto a fish.
