Black Skimmers from Cape May

Black Skimmers Black Skimmer

Mike has always been wanting to get a photo of the black skimmers in their classic skimming maneuver. We were actually sitting on a bench at the Meadows when we first saw the flock, and we were too far away to photograph them. Chris had to console Mike with the fact that if we hadn't been sitting for a rest in the first place, he wouldn't even have seen them and it was okay that he didn't get any pictures. Luckily, when we started up walking again and were around a different side of the lake, a flock of 20 came by and we were closer and had good lighting to get some nice photos (along with many blurry ones with half a bird in them.)

After watching the skimmers for a while, Chris scanned the lake and found a Sora.
