Facts About Limpkin
The Limpkin's bill is uniquely adapted to foraging on apple snails.
Although it resembles herons and ibises in general form, the Limpkin is generally considered to be more closely related to rails and cranes.
In the 1800s, European settlers noted that the Limpkin was so tame that it could sometimes be caught on the nest.
