NOTES: Pair flying overhead, circling around us, probably alarm calling since we out in the marsh on a spit of land, nearby one juvenile was seen. There is a nesting colony of skimmers in this isolated area of swamp, but we only saw this one pair with their young. They stayed in the air for the whole time we were there - about 30 minutes.
