Limpkin

This is a bird I have never photographed before, a Limpkin.  Their range of habitat is extremely small, Florida marshes only.

One of their primary foods is the Apple Snail, again limiting their range. The only Apple Snail I have ever seen is below, leaving with the Limpkin.

I’m not sure of their conservation status, but most likely development is endangering them.
