Baby skimmers growing up

The baby black skimmer colony on Redington Shores beach is growing up. They'll all be gone in another month or two. There were only a few that were still small. The rest looked like the one above, almost grown up. It's so funny to watch them dig a little hole and lay down to sleep in the hole. They seem to do well on this busy little beach. Hopefully, they'll be back next year.


  1. Hope the little one makes it.

  2. They are happy to grow up in a loving environment of their parents.
    I believe their luck of the future.

  3. They will be back. They have found a good place to grow up there.

  4. Very nice images of a fantastic looking bird - wish we had them in the UK!
