Lower Suwannee National Wildlife Refuge[edit]

I removed listed site, there are dozens, if not hundreds, of places this bird can be seen. jimfbleak 17:12, 16 October 2005 (UTC)

Fair 'nuff -- just trying to find appropriate places to link this new article. — Catherine\talk 20:22, 16 October 2005 (UTC)

Putting the limp in Limpkin[edit]

According to the article They walk slowly with a gait described as "slightly undulating" and "giving the impression of lameness or limping",[11] "high-stepping",[8] or "strolling" but according to Birds of North America, “Limp,” from which name is popularly claimed to have originated, certainly not typical behavior and never seen by some long-term observers (Ingalls 1972, DCB).. I'll check HBW tomorrow, but this is a somewhat puzzling discrepancy. Sabine's Sunbird talk 05:09, 25 February 2010 (UTC)

Carau[edit]

Are there any good sources that link the Argentine myth to the limpkin beyond just the name? Sabine's Sunbird talk 18:17, 11 March 2017 (UTC)
