We Are Family

During a particularly rainy week in My Florida Backyard (the rain gauge tops out at 5 inches, and it was close to overflowing this morning), we had a visit from a local family of limpkins, who apparently produced an amazing five babies this year!

The limpkin is a SSC (Species of Special Concern) in the U.S., although common in South America. Even if the call of the limpkin is not exactly a sweet one (see Don't Cry Out Loud for details), we're so fortunate to have them not only living but thriving here in our neighborhood.

  1. How neat to have these wonderful creatures visiting you regularly. I hope they will continue to multiply.

    Have a wonderful 4th of July weekend.
