- I spied a limpkin at the Mahan Dr. and I-10 area this morning (Dec. 16) on
the way to work. It was south of the bridge, in the creek area, next to the
golf course and the recently burned up restaurant. I presume it was eating
or looking for the exotic apple snails that are invading our area. This
site is actually part of Alford Arm/Lake Lafayette and I have seen MANY
snails in this system particularly next to the Buck Lake Road crossing.
When I passed by this afternoon, I circled around twice amidst the
construction and looked closely, but did not see it again. A lone limpkin
was seen in Piney Z this year and I have seen evidence of limpkins in the
Esposito's pond next to their Lonblagh road entrance. Perhaps these snails
are good for something.
