We too, are the Fish Wing tribe.
We are the Halfbeak Nation.
We catch fish in the most improbable way.
We are the Black Skimmers.
|Our fish wings allow us to do aerobatics that could turn the Blue Angels green.|
|Sometimes our fish wings combined with a bright morning sun make us look awesome.|
|Symmetry isn't always a necessary thing.|
Natural selection favors those who can exploit the unexploited niche.
OUR fish wing tribe has the "surface gliding, fish snatching" niche all wrapped up and it's that halfbeak that makes it so.
|Julie Zickefoose should paint this.|
|You can see how that wouldn't work well here.|
It once did.
In Florida, a place that should be heaven for birds like us, we are classified as a "Species of Special Concern".
That's the waiting line for "Threatened Species".
