Scenes at a Local Park Lake

Great Egret

Great Egret

A Great Egret, an American White Ibis, a quartet of Wood Storks, and an Anhinga were all spotted at a small lake in a neighborhood park in Lake County, Florida in the last two weeks.  Sometimes a funny sight like the Great Egret perching on a backyard pergola or four Wood Storks lounging in a lake-front backyard (there had been ten there an hour before!) just amazes me.

I so enjoy spotting a big number of birds around this lake.  It is about the size of a very large pond and is full of needed food for all the wading birds, ducks and geese that enjoy life on its waters.  The little lake is ringed by homes with the park on its far shore.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger picture.  Enjoy!

  1. Those big birds are a wonderful source of entertainment!

    • Hi Montucky, Yes, quite so. They are large enough to see without binoculars, are pretty easily photographed, and are sometimes in flocks. I am so glad that I now live close to a series of little lakes. It makes bird watching especially fun! Have a super good day. Enjoy your mountain scenery!

  2. the anhinga in flight with the fish is really cool!
