Black Skimmer Sunset

A Black Skimmer coming in for a landing at sunset. These gregarious birds nest in colonies along the northeastern US coastline. Right now they are courting and mating at Nickerson Beach in Long Island, NY. In my very brief trip out there this week I was lucky to witness some of those behaviors. I look forward to getting back out there as often as possible this spring/summer to witness and document their breeding cycle. June 14, 2017
