Black Skimmer

The Black Skimmer (Rynchops niger) is similar to the Tern in size and behavior, however they differ in that the skim the water's surface in an attempt to catch food. The bury their lower beak in the water and fly along the surface waiting until they feel their beak hit something in the water (hopefully a fish) before closing their beak. They frequently will skim for 15-20 yards at a time but will go longer at times. The unique way that it feels for fish as it skims along allows them to feed even at night, though they are primarily active at dawn and dusk.
