Black Skimmers are found late in the evening at the Leonabelle Turnbull Birding Center, as well as wherever pools of water exist.

About the Black Skimmer

The Black Skimmer is the only Skimmer found in North and South America. It is a black and white tern and has a massive red bill with a black tip.

The Skimmer uses this lower bill to plow or “skim” through the water until it strikes a fish; then the head snaps down so that the upper bill can grasp the fish.
