Melbourne Beach, Florida

Outdoor Resorts of America

Spring 2008 - Part I

Back to the 08 Spring Travel Directory

I walked the beach for 2 weeks and did not have anything interesting to take a picture of. Then I got two good subjects in one day.

I watched this Blue Heron catch a fish in the surf.

Down the hatch.

I watched this Black Skimmer fishing for minnows.
He flew about 3 feet above the water looking for schools of minnows.
He is gliding with his lower beak skimming in the water.

I did not know he caught this until I displayed the picture on the PC.

I'm not sure if he is drinking water or trying to get a fish!
