Caption: Black skimmer landing on water. The black skimmer (Rynchops niger) is a tern-like seabird that breeds in North and South America. It is one of three species in the skimmer family (Rynchopidae), which feed by flying low over the water surface and using their lower mandible to skim the water for small fish, insects, crustaceans and molluscs.
