Raptors are bird groups like Hawks, Eagles and Falcons. Birds of Prey are not sociable animals but individuals. This bird is a contradiction to the rule. 'Sociabilis', It travels and hunts in flocks...but hunts a giant snail called 'Apple Snail' the Northern River has an abundance of Apple Snail.

Nice, they live in Florida, too

Does Florida have Apple Snails, Have you ever seen one?

No, I have never been to Florida, I just recently looked at bird catalog, that's how I know. And yes, southern Florida does have apple snails

Um.... why don't I see a bird?

I'm posting a 1000 pixel wide image.

OK. Yes it was too large and the bird was offscreen. When I right-clicked and selected "view image," I was able to see the whole thing. Gorgeous bird!!

Thanks, I have a lot of fun taking digital photos of birds.

If that something the population can't see I need to adjust. I have a Dell flat screen monitor, that might be the difference.
