Just another WordPress.com weblog about Nature and Wildlife

This pair of Morning Doves was happily browsing on the ground and then perching on a low wooden rail fence at the beautiful little Four Oaks Park on Morse Ave. in The Villages, Florida.  I spotted the serene doves on Sunday afternoon during a quick golf cart visit to the park and nearby Lake Sumter.  The park is only accessible by cart, on foot, or by bike via the multi-modal path.

The doves were cooing and seemed quite tame.  I think they also like those White Ibises and ducks, get lots of hand-outs from residents and visitors.  This little park is a gem that also has a small observation deck overlooking the Lake Sumter marshes. During the visit I also spotted a Little Blue Heron, a Palm Warbler, and an Osprey.  It was a nice quick visit!  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger picture.  Enjoy!
