Territory Dispute

Territory Dispute

Two Limpkins attempting to settle a territory dispute at The Celery Fields in Sarasota County, Florida. Limpkins have always struck me as a mild-mannered bird with a hauntingly lyrical call. Interesting to capture this shot during a rarely observed aggressive moment.

If you would like to visit The Celery Fields, it is located right off Exit 210 from I-75 at Sarasota, Florida.  The Celery Fields is maintained by the Audubon Society in Sarasota and more information can be found here: http://www.sarasotaaudubon.org/capital-campaign/the-celery-fields/.

Great location for bird photography and right next door to the Big Cat Habitat!

  1. As I was with you when we saw this behavior, I read that male limpkins can be very territorial and aggressive toward each other.
