Black Skimmers of NC

NC Birders,

Today marked the first sighting of Common Loon, Northern Harrier, and the full colony of Black Skimmers inshore on Wrightsville Beach, NC. 2011 Breeding Black Skimmer summer colony consisted of approximate 150 individuals and 75 nests.  The picture posted will document a staging colony of 300 plus individuals. This is an amazing assemblage of Black Skimmer abundance in the southeastern North Carolina.
