Digging down as far as its neck would go, this Limkin brought up and consumed 4 snails in the 15 minutes I was watching. Limpkins feed almost exclusively on Apple Snails. I didn't get any decent photos of the Limpkin with a snail.
|Immature White Ibis|
This immature White Ibis was foraging for bugs in the grass. The wetlands is home to numerous White and Glossy Ibis.
The Anhingas are beginning to nest at the wetlands. This one is displaying its breeding plumage.
There were several Northern Shovelers present, as well as Blue-winged Teals, and Hooded Mergansers. There are also thousands of American Coots making the wetlands their home right now.
|Great Blue Heron|
Looks like I wasn't the only one tidying up the house on Sunday! I saw 4 pairs of Great Blue Herons currently nesting.
