Observation details

Gina Kent of Avian Research and Conservation Institute in Florida got me onto this bird. They were flying close to the flamingoes and I tracked them with the scope. Their bill was unmistakable. They have orange and black bill with the lower mandible noticeably longer. They were totally black on top and white under the wing and on belly. They were skimming the water and flying in formation. Unmistakable
