This femle snail kite caused quite a stir in with the local birders in Hernando County last summer as snail kite sightings are extremely rare. Her and her mate chose to summer at Bystre Lake in Hernando County. This imperiled species is highly dependent on apple snails as the main food source for thier diet. They chose to branch out from the Kissimmee River area in search of food and found Hernando County's little county lake rich with the coveted apple snail!
