Abstract

The feeding ecology of Black Skimmers (Rynchops niger) was studied at Cedar Key and St. Vincent's National Wildlife Refuge on the Florida Gulf coast during the winters of 1979 and 1980, respectively. Objectives of the study were to: 1) delineate characteristics of Black Skimmer winter feeding habitat, 2)monitor the prey resource and prey selection by wintering Black Skimmers, 3) describe social, temporal and spatial aspects of winter foraging, and 4) develop recommendations for Black Skimmer feeding habitat management.
