Finally, some skimmers!

I've been waiting for a long time to see these remarkable birds, and I finally made a trip down to the Radio Road Ponds in Redwood Shores a few weekends back. The birding there was awesome -- so many species all in one place -- and a dozen or so of these fantastic birds chilling on one of the islands. They didn't do much else while I was there, but that's certainly a reason to head back soon!
