There are four species of Skimmers, only one of which is found in North America.
A flock of skimmers looked wholly out of place driving past a clump of bamboos.
The same year which saw the capture of these skimmers of the sea saw also the beginning of a much greater naval war.
Like the gulls, the skimmers moved about much more freely on the ground than did the terns.
The gulls and skimmers were nesting on this island in great numbers, but the terns were many times more plentiful.
The Skimmers are gull-like in form, with long, slender body and long wings, spreading almost three feet.
Skimmers are Tern-like birds having a very strangely developed bill.
Skimmers nest in large communities, the same as do the Terns, laying their eggs in hollows in the sand.
The sea was calm, and a moon made conditions ideal for Jerry's "skimmers."
Another distinct lot is that of the low-flying black "skimmers."
