Yesterday I went back to the Edwin B. Forsythe Wildlife Refuge.  Several of the interesting birds that I saw were Black Skimmers.  They were like fishermen so focused on their tasks that they did not care about anything else, including people with cameras pointed at them.  I took many shots of them skimming the marshes with the lower mandible of their beaks cutting straight lines in the water.  Here’s one  of a Black Skimmer which had just launched off from the shoreline.

Here’s another looking for a fishing spot.
