Black skimmer. One of the only birds with a vertical pupil.  Supposedly that helps diminish the glare off of the water. Also their lower bill is longer than the upper.  #weirdanimals #blackskimmers #beach

[DETAIL] C.J. Hudgins ‘Seems like a Dream at Secret Beach’ Hypnotized Series©️2017. 22” x 30” Colored Pencil and Oil Pastel. 
Two friends having coffee together when something flies by their window. . . Because there's no explaining what your imagination can make you see and feel. Seems like a dream, they got me hypnotized.

The Florida Department of Environmental Protection's and Rookery Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve, in collaboration with Audubon Florida and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC), is working to protect nesting habitat for least terns, black skimmers and Wilson's plovers at the Second-Chance Sandbar. The sandbar, which is designated as a Critical Wildlife Area (CWA) by the FWC, will be closed to allow for successful nesting of these beach-dependent species.

When we were at Fort Desoto Beach, we saw these birds we thought were dead and lying on the beach. Turns out they are Black Skimmers that sleep lying down. They feed at night by flying over the water with their  lower beak dipped in the water hoping to scoop up fish. They have a large underbite you can see on #6 and very unique behavior according to:
https://www.audubon.org/news/the-black-skimmer

We use Google Photos to backup our phone pics. It has a cool feature called Google Lens. Looking at the picture in Google Photos, hit the Google Lens button and it tries to identify what is in the picture. It works "most" of the time. For us amateurs, it is like a park ranger in your phone. It names trees, birds, plants, almost anything. It is wrong sometimes, but we have good luck most of the time. Especially if you crop out everything else.

Black skimmers gather at the beach on Indian Shores every spring.  Their colorful beaks cross when closed, which makes them great at snatching fish out of the water.⠀

The manmade sandy beach in Crystal River attracts black skimmers in the winter time. Unfortunately it also attracts people that let their kids chase them relentlessly while they try to stay warm and rest.

Meet the Black Skimmer!

Flying inches over the ocean, Black Skimmers dip their elongated lower jaw into the sea and slice through the water until making contact with a fish. Black Skimmers feed by touch and use their exceptional night vision to forage primarily in the evening. As seabirds they spend most of their life on the open ocean but also skim for fish on inland lakes and saltmarshes. *******************************************
The nearshore waters and rocky tidepools of Crystal Cove State Park fall within its Marine Protected Area or MPA. MPAs are safe havens for both marine wildlife and habitat along California’s coastline. As part of the greater California MPA network, Crystal Cove’s State Marine Conservation Area (SMCA) is granted specific protections in an effort to encourage a healthy and resilient coastal wilderness. When observing birds in this SMCA always remember to give them plenty of space, making sure to never harass or disturb coastal wildlife. Take a trip down to the shoreline and see what you will discover in Crystal Cove State Park’s MPA today! *******************************************
Amazing photography courtesy of Bill Halladay.

Stay tuned for more in our #ShorebirdSaturday series!

Black Skimmers fly in unison.  Their bottom beak is longer than their top beak.  They skim the top of the water to eat and find their food by feel not sight.  To see them in action go to my IGTV channel.  #blackskimmers #birds #crescentbeach #visitflorida #fl #florida #travel #karasgetaways #beach
