Skimmers are strange looking birds, with their bill one longer then ther other. There very elegant birds in flight and fun to watch as they skim the top of the waters.
Another older photo taken off the flat behind Lovers Key in SWFL.

Perfect! I love those funny birds>
They are funny looking but beautiful in flight !!
Great shot Karen, haven’t seen one before! :))
Skimmers are here by the hundreds, they dont do much of anything when landed just kind of sit there like this one. But in Flight they fly in unison, and they use the extra long bill to skimm the top of the water for food !
Karen…Love the skimmer! One of the birds i am always trying to catch as they fly and feed. i have yet to get a really good one. i chase them around at Bunche Beach. Ever been there? Sometimes hundreds congregate there. I like your image.Liz
I have been but many years ago, You now can find me somewhere in and around Estero Bay. That’s where I take most of my photos of shorebirds. Mostly on the mud flats, but as you can see in this photo the mud flats don’t make for a good background. I sometimes go to the front of Lovers Key theres a sand bar not too far off shore where the birds gather I need to go there again better backgrounds. Either place there are always 100s of diferent kinds of birds sometime the flat has 1000s.
Wonderful! Great details and color!
Thanks Kim ! :)
great shot Karen, he is so cute :))
Thansk Trish !! : )
What an interesting seabird with it’s long body, short legs and missmatched bill lengths … ♥ his vibrant colors. Beautiful shot Karen!! Take Care ~ Rick & Deb ~ ☺
