Limpkin

Aramus guarauna

Description:

The Limpkin is about 28 inches tall. It is brown with white spots and streaks. This year is the first time I have heard its cry (and realized which bird it was coming from). What a haunting sound!

Habitat:

Swamps and marshes. Spotted near a lake at a local park.

Notes:

The Limpkin is protected under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act in the USA.
