Limpkin

Hello,

Happy Tuesday!
The Limpkin is a Florida breeder, it can be found from northern Argentina to Florida. The Limpkin's diet consists mainly of apple snails.

I have seen the Limpkins all around Florida, I can hear them while I am inside my house. That is how loud they sound, like an alarm going off.





In Florida, these birds do not seem to fear people. We have walked by them, while they stood on the trail or next to the trail.




The Limpkin makes some unusual sounds, some sounding down right awful.




I hope you enjoyed my photos and post. Thank you for stopping by and as always I appreciate your comments.

My list of memes for today, I hope to see you there. Thanks to both of the host below.

Saturday's Critters #162


Saturday's Critters #162



Happy Saturday, it's time to share your critters and post. Any kind of critter will do, even a new or old post.. I appreciate everyone who is linking in with this week's critter party.


We visited Pelican Island NWR on 11/11/16, located near Vero Beach Florida. We left early enough in the morning for a stop at Vero Beach to see the sunrise and then it was off for our hike at Pelican Island NWR.

A pretty sunrise at Vero Beach.


A couple of Sanderlings with a Ruddy Turnstone on Vero Beach. The birds almost blend in with the sand and seaweed.


A juvenile Night Heron, my guess is a Black Crowned Night Heron? Do you agree?


A White Pelican and a Cormorant in the distance at Pelican Island NWR.


A Great Blue Heron with a distant Brown Pelican.


A Tricolored Heron seen on the trail at the Pelican Island NWR.


A Great Egret seen on the trail.


The White Ibis were also seen on the trail, some let us walk by others flew off.
