A Great Blue Heron, a few Double Crested Cormorants, a s-l-o-w (is there any other kind?) turtle, a pair of Mallard Ducks, and a male Boat-tailed Grackle were all spotted at what I refer to as “The Walmart Pond”, at Buffalo Ridge near the Villages, Florida on CR 466, last night at about five thirty. I go to the pond every week or so to check out the wildlife. My husband and I happened to be in that area last night around dinnertime and decided to visit the pond for a few minutes.
By the way, I did not see any ‘gators! The Alligators may well be gone but possibly they were just submerged and out of sight. I enjoy going to this pond to see what wildlife is there. I am usually rewarded by a sighting of large birds! Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger picture. Enjoy!
