Snail Kite Kleptoparasitism of Limpkins
Limpkin (Aramus guarauna) Science Article 1
Kleptoparasitism is defined as the stealing of food from an individual by another individual (Rothschild and Clay 1952). Interspecific kleptoparasitism occurs in many animal groups but is particularly widespread among birds, especially when individuals of different species regularly congregate at feeding areas (Brockmana nd Barnard 1979).
