Aramus guarauna


Adult limpkin waded in a marsh, likely in search of food. Its white head and neck feathers contrast with a background of chocolate-colored feathers.


It was seen in the south Florida wetlands within Everglades National Park. The limpkin’s range extends from Florida all the way down to Argentina.


It is the only extant member of Aramus.

Thanks so much for your comments, Dawn! :)

Thank you for sharing your information.

That's a cool looking Limpkin.

Neil, you’re right... that possibility is quite scary but I found that the pythons are elusive. I think people have come across them more often at night, unlike your cool daytime spottting! Someday, I’d love to visit Aussieland; Kakadu sounds wiiiild.

Thank you, Tukup. Hope the mosquitoes aren’t bothering you too much lately, lol.

Nice series Mauna. I can identify with the mosquito problem. Thanks.

I think I'd be more worried about those industrial-strength Burmese pythons that live there. They would worry me more than even alligators would. We have a similar wetlands area here called Kakadu.

Thank you, Neil! It was a lovely experience, minus the gigantic mosquitoes! Still highly recommend.

Deep in the Everglades - what an amazing place that must be. Wonderful spotting, mauna.
