Great Blue Herons, Great Egrets, American White Pelicans, Double Crested Cormorants, Snowy Egrets, Canada Geese, what looks like a rarely seen Snow Goose, White Ibises, Bufflehead Ducks, Mallard Ducks, an Osprey, Seagulls, and a few Lesser Scaup Ducks were all spotted yesterday afternoon at a wonderful little private park lake, Lake Paradise, at Paradise Park in The Villages, Florida.

Seeing all the numerous birds is very pleasant and is similar to what I used to see at Tuscawilla Park in Ocala, Florida.  Mostly the crowd of birds are migratory Winter visitors.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of the photo.  Enjoy!

  1. that’s awesome. love the buffleheads!

  2. You really get to see a wide assortment of water birds! How lucky you are!

  3. Hello, my favorites are the white pelicans. I did not know the Snow Geese went that far south. I guess they do! Great variety of birds. Have a happy day and weekend ahead!

    • Hi Eileen, In the four years I have lived in Florida, I have never seen a Snow Goose. From what I have seen on the Internet, it is unusual to have a visit from one. It was hanging with the Canada Geese. Guess it was lonely. Who knows how it came to be here. Someone imported it or it got together with the Canada Geese and just flew South. Have a tremendously nice evening and a good day tomorrow!
