p.1 #1 · Black Skimmers: Learning to Fly


The skimmer chicks are getting larger and some are even flying now from this late brood. Most of the predation of these chicks is over, but the gulls still pick off a few smaller ones here and there. It's nice to see some chicks flying around or away from the gulls when they want to now. These shots are from the last few weeks.

Excellent set again, Herb. I never seen any skimmer chick in the Bay Area so this is a great treat for me. Thanks for sharing.
