Description

A colony of black skimmers nests along Wrightsville Beach NC. At the time this photo was taken, most of the black skimmer babies had fledged and were learning to fly and hunt on their own. However a couple younger chicks were still present among the other birds in the colony. This young black skimmer chick was left to fend for itself while the parents hunted for fish.
