A Limpkin Family

This morning I drove to one of my favorite places near , and I happened to find a family of Limpkins. Mom and Dad were both feeding their four little chicks, and it looks like they just recently hatched. I usually only come here occasionally for just a few minutes to see what ducks may be floating out on , but now I think I’ll have to come here once a week or so and check up on these little ones. I’m always amazed at how tender the adults can be in caring for their chicks. I kept my distance from them, and while occasionally they would come relatively close to me, most of these photos are pretty heavily cropped.

You’ve captured the beaties of both the chick and adult birds; I especially like the third picture with parent and chick just touching beak-tips. 🙂
