|Black Skimmer in Flight|
Nickerson Beach is a 120-acre Park that borders the Atlantic Ocean. Depending on the month, there is a large variety of nesting birds, including Black Skimmers, American Oystercatchers, Piping Plovers, Least and Common Terns and a variety of gulls.
Nickerson Beach has been part of the Nassau County Park systems since 1967 and the beach is approximately a half mile-long. There are restrooms, and a food concession area. If you like photographing birds, this is a great area to visit.
Further blogs will detail the interactions that I had with the different species of birds.
