Spend a Morning on the Beach!

If you need some "feel good moments" in your day, head for the south end of Wrightsville Beach. Black Skimmer chicks abound, Least Tern chicks are already learning to fly, and the suspense continues to build as we wait to see when American Oystercatcher and Common Tern chicks will appear.

Look closely to find FOUR Black Skimmer chicks in this photo!

This chick is trying to devour a snack as big as he is!

This Common Tern is sitting on a nest right behind a Black Skimmer with her chicks.  We are still waiting to see the Common Tern chicks running around the beach.

This Least Tern chick already has some feathers and was seen taking a first short flight across the beach.

There are many American Oystercatchers on the beach but no sign of chicks YET!
