This Limpkin standing in yellow flowers seems to pose for his picture. The Limpkin got its name from its limping gait. The Limpkin’s favorite meals are snails, so they walk along the shores of marshes and probe the mud for food. They have a curious “jungle sound” song used in the original Tarzan movies.

Limpkin feeding on Snail
This bird is one of my favorites and it is uncommon in North America! They feed on freshwater apple snails and here is one grabbing a snail. They are large wading birds like ibises but are in a family represented by only one species.
