Skimmers nesting on the beach.

Nice trash!

The skimmers are getting down to the nesting business. There are hundreds of them nesting near St. Petersburg beach. In the next couple of weeks, we should have teeny, tiny baby skimmers running around. Just in time for the 4th of July fireworks and tourists to scare them to death. The skimmer nesting site is currently roped off but the tiny babies tend to wander outside of the ropes. If you are on any of the beaches in the Tampa bay area, please watch out for babies. And please take your trash with you! Hopefully, I'll be back with baby skimmer pictures in the next couple of weeks.


  1. They look almost Disney like with their contrasting colors.

  2. Wow, gorgeous photos of the Black Skimmers. They are cool looking birds. I would love to see a baby skimmer. Can you show me a picture of one?
