This Snail Kite was having some luck. Out of its normal territory, seen just north of Cape Coral, Florida.

Thanks Pippan- definitely a large snail. Apple snails are the size of - wait for it - apples. And they comprise 100% of this bird's diet.

Many thanks Bob, i was surprised to see them up here. They're fun to watch as they pick every bit of meat out of that big shell.

Hi Jeremy, thanks. Just one month, staying until March 1, missing a lot of snow back home! Well not really missing....
