Call of the Limpkin

I was once standing next to a Limpkin that had perched on the railing of a boardwalk I was on when it let loose with a one of its calls.  It sounded like I was being attacked by a pterodactyl.  I got this iPhone recording on one yesterday.  It was maybe 40-50 feet away.

This is what they look like:


Blue-Gray Gnatcatcher

Little Green Heron

Wood Duck

One more of the Wood Duck from a few posts ago.   I like the colors so why not show it.



This has always been one heck of a difficult bird to get a photo of.  They are shy and stay close to the grass.  I lucked out a week or so back and found one as it was making its way across an open area.
