Sandy-in-Alaska-100x-100I had the privilege of coming upon a pair of adult Limpkins feeding their six downy chicks by the edge of the water in Viera Wetlands. It was such a gift to be part of this wonderful activity. The adults would catch the Apple Snails, then crack the shells and feed just the meat of the snail to their baby chicks. What a treat!
