Rockport Beach Park, Rockport, Texas
This is a really cool bird that nests here in Rockport. The best part is that when they feed they “skim.” Flying close to the water and dipping their beak in as they go along picking up small fish and crustaceans. Notice that the lower beak is longer than the top. You can kind of see it in the video. I’m not happy with the video quality, but we had lots of trouble with windows (wmv) embedded video so I’m trying flash video instead. It works better but I haven’t figured out the quality setting yet.
