Wednesday’s Whistlers


Just some random photographs I took in December of the many Black-bellied Whistling Ducks on Lake Paradise, here in The Villages, FL.  I am happy to report that we did get a little rain last night which will certainly be welcome as we have been in a drought.

Lake Paradise, a local park lake, is rapidly drying up and the views from Boone and Swartz Park are mostly of mud flat lake bottom now.  The main part of our lake still has water but fewer birds (lots of fish have been eaten by pelicans, herons, egrets, ducks, cormorants and sea gulls).  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of the photograph.  Enjoy!

  1. It looks like the water in the lake is really low!

    • Hi Montucky, Our few drops that fell last night were minor – the far end of the lake is a big mud flat with a few pathetic large shallow puddles. Most of the birds are in the area of the lake now that is hard to see well from the public shoreline. Have a great day today! Enjoy your beautiful scenic views weather permitting!

  2. Hello, I always enjoy seeing the Whistling Ducks. Great captures of these cute ducks. Enjoy your day and the week ahead!
