Apple Snail Kite

Posted By Ale Jochum, Friday, June 13, 2008
The Apple Snail Kite, with a population of less than 400 pairs in Florida, is a small bird of prey found mainly in the freshwater marshland of Central and South Florida. The males are grayish colored and the females and dark brown with white streaks. Their fates are intimately connected with their only food source- the Apple snail- also endangered. Apple Snails prefer the vegetation in shallow water and will migrate to follow it. Thus the range of the Apple Snail Kite is also strongly dependent on water fluctuations.
