A bonded pair of Limpkins hunting for apple Snails in the water below the deep thatch.

I watched for a while as I was curious to see if there were in fact Apple Snails to be found in these conditions. Sure enough, the Limpkins found what they were looking for.

But the Apple Snails were very small. So my guess is that the Limpkins were in fact raiding a nursery and in effect mortgaging their future.
