Glossy Ibis, Black Skimmer at Kearny Marsh

Copy of IMG_2241  
   Ron Shields reports: "I saw a Glossy Ibis for a second time this summer at the Kearny Marsh on Sunday, my first sighting of a single Black Skimmer on Tuesday at 7:10 p.m.  Maybe one of the skimmers reported at DeKorte? 
"The skimmer flew right in front of the bow of my kayak and hung around for quite awhile feeding all over the marsh." (Thanks, Ron!)Copy (2) of IMG_2968
