This is a Black Skimmer, a common bird of the eats coast and gulf coast of north america. The weird bill is used to skim the water and when a fish is touched, it snaps the bill shut, getting the fish in the process.
I too the photo while on an early morning walk and after coming across a group of these birds resting on the beach.
