In recent days, Florida Mottled Ducks have visited the temporary rainfall retention ponds in the development where my hubby and I live. These native dabblers also were seen at two Northwestern Marion County rural farm ponds with one pair enjoying the company of a whole bunch of Black-bellied Whistling Ducks! I took these pictures on April 17, 2015, April 20, 2015, and on April 22, 2015. Please click on the thumbnail image to see a slightly larger version of that picture.
