A Blue Wing Teal Duck, a pair of Mottled Ducks, several Cattle Egrets, a herd of Cattle, and a pair of Sand Hill Cranes were all spotted at or close to the horse farm or ranch pond in Northwestern Marion County, FL, where I have often spotted wildlife in the past. The Cattle are now grazing in the pasture where the larger pond is located at.
I was surprised about the Cattle and the Teal Duck as both were newly seen there. I took the pictures of the cranes at another much smaller pond on that same ranch but just down the road about an eighth mile. I took the pictures on Jan. 5, 2015 from the side of the road.
