Every living creature that can fly is already way ahead in the “that’s amaz-ing” stakes, but for some birds, amazing doesn’t quite get you there . . .
Take the Black Skimmer that so elegantly floats at a precise height above the water’s surface with only its longer lower mandible cutting through the water; it’s hoping to hit a small fish whereupon its bill will snap shut!
Using high definition video techniques, we will watch Skimmers and other birds as they revel in their water environments to display these fascinating behaviors – they don’t mean to entertain us, but they surely do.
