Both adults (ASYs) at different stages of molt - p5 dropped and p9 dropped. Adults by lack of pale tips to unmolted primary coverts and molt clines in remiges and among wing coverts.Thanks to Jonah for discovering, refinding, and quickly reporting these birds.

Yo,
Two BLACK SKIMMERS (presumably the same two)
are hauled out at Crissy. I’ll chill with them for like 15 mins if anyone’s nearby.

all the best,
