Summary:
The Snail Kite (Rostrhamus sociabilis) is a medium-sized raptor that feeds almost exclusively on freshwater snails of the genus Pomacea. Although it is a locally common bird in South and Central America, Mexico, and Cuba (Sykes 1984), in the United States the Snail Kite is endangered (U.S.F.W.S. 1986) and found only in South Florida. In recent years Water Conservation Area 3A (WCA-3A) has been a major nesting area for Snail Kites (Sykes 1983,Beissinger 1983).
