Snail Kite at Orlando Wetlands Park

Snail Kite
Snail Kites don't frequently come into Orange County, but with all the rain we've been having, I guess water levels are high, and this one decided to look for a better place to find Apple Snails.  What a beautiful bird!  I watched this one for almost an hour.  It spent a lot of time just perched, but then it did put on a show for a little while, collecting snails and then eating them right in front of me. Based on the yellow legs and thin-looking bill, I think this is a first year bird.

  11. You can watch episodes of the Simpson's that have not
    even aired on national television yet. The tv show has
    been on the air since 1990 and without a doubt, it has been noted as
    the greatest animated television program for its time.
