A Limpkin Family

A Limpkin Family



Limpkin Chick

This morning I drove to one of my favorite places near Lake Jesup, 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 Lake Jesup, 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.
