Good shot of a very different creature. Does it belong to the egret family?

Hey Don, Patty & Kjell,
Thanks for stopping by.
After looking at the link Dennis so kindly supplied, I'm not surprised most folks haven't seen this bird before. The only state it claims as home in the US. is Florida. I'm glad I went ahead and posted this one. I was afraid it might have been done so much folks were tired of it.
Now I'll have to get some pics of the apple snails they feed on, you won't believe the size of these things!
Cool Facts
  • The Limpkin's bill is uniquely adapted to foraging on apple snails. The closed bill has a gap just before the tip that makes the bill act like tweezers. The tip itself is often curved slightly to the right so it can be slipped into the right-handed chamber of the snail. The Limpkin is the only member of its taxonomic family. Although it resembles herons and ibises in general form, the Limpkin is generally considered to be more closely related to rails and cranes.
    GW:bye:

Nice sharp image GW! I've been out of town for the week and am now catching up with the forum. Did you get your camera back from being repaired? Glad to your posts though!
