African Skimmer - Rhynchops flavirostris. Resident in the northern parts of southern Africa on the sandbanks of large rivers and estuaries and a vagrant to South Africa. I have seen this bird only once while canoing on the Zambezi a flock flew down and skimmed the water. See my Flight board for a picture of the African Skimmer in action. Photograph Warwick Tarboton
