Yesterday (Mon, Jan 27) and today (Tues, Jan 28) at dusk both days around 5pm - 5:30pm, was able to observe 1 Black Skimmer doing a lot of... skimming, back and forth across the lagoon, over and over, for 20+ minutes, with 3 companions standing on the sandbar near the north side not far East past the pedestrian bridge. Clear view of large lower orange and black mandible. Long wings, black on top of head with white throat and underside, black tail. 6-8 gulls standing nearby.
