Just another WordPress.com weblog about Nature and Wildlife

White Pelicans, a Sandhill Crane, Northern Shoveler Ducks, a Great Egret, Double Crested Cormorants and Lesser Yellowlegs all joined the mob of Seagulls in the fray trying to find a lunch meal at a local golf course water hazard pond.  I estimate that there were well over one hundred White Pelicans in two big groups there in the large pond.  That Sandhill Crane landed right in front of a home with statues of large wading birds!  How fun!

Additionally, I spotted a male Boat-tailed Grackle perched on the roof of our car!  I took these pictures on January 17, 2016 at the Belle Glade Golf Course pond in The Villages, Florida.  I was there at the pond on a shoreline knoll, observing for about twenty minutes, and had such a great time seeing all the action!  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture.  Enjoy!

    • Hi Eileen, I am so surprised to see so many different types of birds here. Fabulous spots for observing the big birds. Not as many songbirds but gee, those ducks, geese, waders and big birds! Have a wonderful day tomorrow and a nice coming weekend! Stay warm and safe if your area gets hit with that storm.
