Just another WordPress.com weblog about Nature and Wildlife


This Belted Kingfisher was spotted sitting on the top of a water pump house beside a small farm pond where several geese and cormorants also were resting on a float and on the shoreline.  This little pond is in the backyard of a home on a few acres, and is located in the heart of horse farm country in Northwestern Marion County, Florida.

I took these pictures on March 14, 2015, from the side of the road.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture.  Enjoy!

    • Hi Betsy, I rarely saw them in your area but did see one at Lake St. Geo. Have a great weekend and enjoy your gorgeous yards! I imagine the Dogwoods, and Redbuds are blooming now.
