Limpkin in Pantanal I had always wanted to see one of these but despite a week in the Everglades - no chance. I did finally see one in Jamaica due to a very hard-working guide, but in Pantanal they were not so hard to find and you could even get some photos.

    1. That is a good, question, I never really noticed the small piece of white fluff in its beak - your guess sounds pretty good to me. Posted 5 years ago

The Limpkin, "Aramus guarauna", is a bird that looks like a large rail but is skeletally closer to cranes. It is the only extant species in the genus "Aramus" and the family Aramidae. It is found mostly in wetlands in warm parts of the Americas, from Florida to northern Argentina. It feeds on molluscs, with the diet dominated by apple snails of the genus "Pomacea".
