Saving a black skimmer chick

A tiny black skimmer chick was struggling after being attacked by a sea gull and a fellow photographer was able to lift it to safety. She quickly took it to a bird rescue shelter nearby and they took it. Checking the next day we found it was eating and seemed to be doing well.
