# 6 - Ibises, Spoonbill, Flamingo, Limpkin
It was on July, 2012, that Hilda found a
Limpkin in Luquillo.  Field guides included
this bird in the list of extirpated species in
our territory.  After this important event,
the Limpkin has been found in different
sites around the mainland of Puerto Rico.
