RVA Limpkin

Posted on 08/26/2023 in misc

I saw on the local birding group that a Limpkin was hanging out in 3 Lakes Park in Henrico County, about 15 minutes from home. Limpkins live in S Georgia and Florida, I have no idea what this guy is doing so far from home, but I was glad to have the oppotunity to observe him for about 20 minutes, get some photos, and check him off my life list.

We also got a bonus Great Egret and Osprey at the park this AM. I'm glad the big birds were out, because hearing songbirds over the cicadas would have been a challenge.

I like hearing from readers, all three of you! Nobody comments on blogs anymore, and I'd rather not use Facebook or Twitter as a comment system so it's back to the email.
