Would you believe I took all these photographs yesterday morning from sunrise through about 9:00 AM at several local marshes, and lakes in both Sumter and Lake Counties in Florida.  Amazing!  I am so lucky to live in an area where there are so many larger birds (and animals) in the wild.

Additionally, I saw Sandhill Cranes, a Limpkin, Wood Storks, a Tri-colored Heron, Great Blue Herons, Mallard Ducks, and Black-bellied Whistling Ducks.  I’ll be posting snapshots of these birds in coming posts.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version.  Enjoy!

  1. you really are in a birder’s paradise!!

  2. That’s pretty special to see all of the bird life and a gator besides!

    • Hi Montucky, The Alligators are why I have yet to use my kayak in Florida. I have been told there is nothing to worry about but still… I’ll stick to bird watching from the shore or on a big boat. Ha! Have a wonderful day and enjoy your gorgeous scenery weather permitting!

  3. Hello, you do see a great variety of birds there! I love them all even the gator. Happy Monday, enjoy your new week!

    • Hi Eileen, Yes, I am even fond of those ever-present gators. The bird sightings continue to be fairly spectacular at the moment locally. Have a great evening tonight and a good day tomorrow!
