Florida Wildlife Scene

This image was taken at Grassy Waters Wildlife Preserve in West Palm Beach. At this time many of the entrances and trails are closed but a few are still open. Check their website.

The bird at the center of the photo looks to be a snail-eating Limpkin. They are tropical wetland birds and apple snails are their food of choice. The male makes a terrible noise at night (to humans) but music to ears of a lady limpkin.
