Seafood Dinner for the Birds!

This evening as I walked in the park bordering Lake Tsala Apopka, I spotted two limpkins foraging along the edge of the water. These wading birds plucked snails, crayfish and frogs from the water’s edge. One waded out in the shallow water and pulled up a freshwater shellfish, brought it to the shore, pried open the shell and devoured its soft meat. As the sun’s rays dwindled, the limpkins walked into the darkness of the evening landscape.
