Limpkin Luncheon

Limpkin

Recently I found this old photo I took while walking the trails at Riverbend Park.  
We had stopped at one of the larger ponds when I spotted this sweet little Linpkin eating an Apple Snail. 
There were several empty shells strewn along the bank so she must have had a lot of munching going on before we got there.

Just look at those eyes.. (ok, eye) isn't she cute :>)

sharing with

Happy weekend to all :)

I confess that I have never heard of a limpkin before. It's a pretty bird.

This bird is new to me too. It is pretty, colouring and eye showing.

Sandra said...

cute, great capture. have you ever heard how loud they are? the condo lake had a couple and the people that live there were putting out a bounty on it for anyone brave enough to get rid of it. i have never heard such a racket, and they go on for hours without stopping.

I've gotta get out there and find me some limpkins -- didn't see any last year. They are pretty .... and sure looks like s/hes enjoying the escargot lunch.
