I was fortunate enough to spend a few minutes on a Saturday morning this summer watching baby skimmers learning to do things that adult skimmer do. They were trying to imitate what their parents were doing. Getting their feet wet and trying to figure out what all the fuss was about putting your beak in the water. Soon they’ll be experts at it themselves.

  1. Hello, adorable photos of the baby skimmer. Great sighting! Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Saturday, enjoy your weekend!

  2. Your baby bird pictures always make me wish we could spend the whole year in Florida; even though I’d certainly miss my (almost all grown-up) human babies here in Oregon. This is such a perfect series. Even seeing adult skimmers make my heart pound, I might not be able to stand actually seeing these adorable fluff balls.
