Ryan Photographic - Aramidae - Limpkin
This is another monotypic family. The common name, Limpkin, stems from the way the bird walks with an apparent limp. Limpkins are found from Florida to Northern Argentina. They feed primarily on apple snails. While snails and mussels predominate in their diet they will take other invertebrates when on offer.
