Went to Tybee North Beach this evening right at the 4:30 pm high tide. Although it was only a 6.5 foot tide, there were still plenty of shorebirds resting on the beach with gulls, terns and skimmers. At first, there was no sign of the Snow Bunting, but at about 5:15 Helena Wood called out that she had just seen a different bird land. Sure enough, it was our little buddy. It hopped and walked about in the lovely evening light. I was able to get lots of pictures as the bird kept landing closer and closer to where I was standing.
Looking at one photo of a Black Skimmer skimming, I noticed that the bird has a green band. I don't know who is banding skimmers but would be grateful for any information. Cheers, Diana.
