The uniform of the day in the shallows at Honeymoon Beach State Park was black and white, although a touch of red or orange was acceptable. ... welcomed, even.
We saw a few terns, some gulls, and so many black skimmers we couldn't count them.
The little brown job in the background (a sanderling, maybe?) is obviously leaving because he isn't wearing the correct colors.
This is only the third time we've seen skimmers. I love the colors -- but still think it's weird that they don't seem to have eyes.
A few cormorants even joined the party for a while.
SHARED WITH WILD BIRD WEDNESDAY. Thanks to Stewart.
