Black skimmer - 9-17-05 - Dacus Bar

The first thing I did was call Mike Todd to get the bird posted on the net and then I called Kenny and LaDonna Nichols; they are doing a Big Year in Arkansas and I knew they might want to try for this bird. If it flew north, south or west, it would have to fly into Arkansas territory. Kenny did not hesitate and hit the road as I sat on the bird just in case it left; they were standing next to me at 5PM.

The bird got up and flew around quite a bit and entered Arkansas twice before they got there. We waited an hour and a half before it flew again.
