Rare Snail Kite Sighting In Viera Wetlands

Another day and the Snail Kite remains in the Viera wetlands. With the abundance of Apple Snails we may just have a happy camper or resident some may say. The food supply is a major effect on the Snail Kite which relys on water supply in the south Florida wetlands to produce the Apple Snail habitat. As habitat goes away so do the Snail Kites. Once known as the Everglades Kite the Snail Kite has had to search out new food supplies further north in Florida. To my knowledge we may have the most northern sighting as of now.
