A colony of black skimmers resides on Wrightsville Beach, NC, and I was fortunate to spend many hours observing them while on vacation. The parents were continuously collecting fish and delivering them to the hungry fledglings, who were incredibly demanding. Although many of the youngsters were capable of flying, they still relied on the parents to be fed.
