I'm not sure why I like Limpkins so much. They are certainly not flashy or colorful.
Something about them makes me smile ... definitely not their call which is other worldly and usually a night time thing.
It freaks me out.
Here's a heavily cropped shot taken from the opposite bank of the Oklawaha River at the Eureka boat ramp. There were 4 or 5 limpkins slurping snails late in the afternoon.
Baby Limpkins are hilariously cute gangly fuzz balls.
I don't have any current (digital) shots of little Limpkins, ... not yet anyway.
