On my after work walk around Kapok Park, I saw an adult limpkin down at the end of the creek. At first I thought “I don’t feel like walking down there to get another picture of a limpkin.” It was just starting to get dark and time was running out quick. But, I noticed he was eating. So I headed down there and guess what I saw?
A baby limpkin hiding in the grass.
Not just one but four babies. All hiding in the grass. They looked to be just a couple of days old.
One of the parents stayed close to them and kept pulling the tall grass around them. I sat down for a few minutes and watched her. She seemed to be making a makeshift nest for the night. Finally, she plopped down on top of them and looked like she was going to stay there for the night.
precious! my oh my those bills have a long way to grow!
Oh my goodness! Baby limpkins are cute!

Oh, Dina, I’m so glad you went down there “for one limpkin” because you hit the jackpot. The babies are adorable. Wonderful photos.
