Here's a few black skimmers flying in with food. The skimmer chicks had quite the assortment of fish this season with spearing, mullet, killies, needlefish and butterfish all making it to the grocery list every week.

Amazing set, Herb. You got all kind of fishes. I wonder with the last photo where needle fish has its "needle" broken. Is it the parent skimmer break it so that it can swallow easier? So beautiful. I love them all.
