Black Skimmer's

in #nature4 years ago

Watch this video I got of some very cool birds - Black Skimmer's. They make nests right on the beach by scrapping out a little indentation in the sand and then lay their eggs. You can see in this video some of their mating habits. Sometimes a big storm will come along and wipe out the entire colony of nesting birds. The adults can fly away, but young birds and eggs don't make it. Sea Gulls also are a hazard for the Black Skimmers as they go after the young birds. It's hard being a bird!

I know that beach - it is full of coy females, birds too.

Wow Black Skimmers are very rare right now. They tend to be very territorial birds. Long winged coastal waterbirds. This bird is very remarkable for its sharp and long beak. But one thing for sure to distinguish males and female, The male black skimmer is significantly larger than the female, with a longer beak, but is similar in colouration. Great video I have learned a lot

Thanks for watching!
