Black Skimmers Feeding etc

Thanks to Dan Jehl for pointing me to the jetty just north of Imperial Beach and South of Coronado Cays off of the Silver Strand for Black Skimmers.  A trio of Skimmers started coming around every 10 mins or so doing a wide circle around that area of the bay just after low tide.  

Also present was the American Flamingo, a Reddish Egret, and a number of common shorebirds (Forster's Terns, Brown Pelicans, Great Blue Heron, Great Egret, Snowy Egret, Whimbrels, Long Billed Curlews, Marbled Godwits).  Also Savannah Sparrows.
The Skimmers fed actively from about 4PM until 5:30PM when they roosted on the middle island just south of the Jetty.  Low Tide was at 3:36 PM.
