Black Skimmers

Strange Birds with no eyes,
are called Black Skimmers.
How do they fly, or walk around,
bumping into stuff, falling into holes ?

Oh, they are messing with your mind. See them all close their eyes as you snap the shutter. Sneaky little birds.

Aren't these the ones that have a catlike eyes?

Their beaks remind me of candy corn.
But surely they have eyes??
