Just another WordPress.com weblog about Nature and Wildlife


A Belted Kingfisher, White Pelicans, Sea Gulls, Muscovy Ducks, and Canada Geese were all spotted on Lake Paradise in The Villages, FL,  on January 7, 2017.  This little neighborhood lake has a few more inches of water in it since we got a good soaking rain yesterday and the night before last.  I am so very glad!  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of the picture.  Enjoy!

  1. I’m sure the birds appreciate the additional water.
    Despite the amount of ice chunks that are floating down the river here there are large numbers of geese as well.

    • Hi Montucky, I like the Canada Geese. One here is a hybrid – likely a cross between a Snow Goose and the Canada. That is the one with the white cheek. Glad you have geese around. Some dislike them because of the mess or their honking. Just need to be in the right numbers for the location and the right location, period. No geese at airports and few at golf courses, etc. Have a great day today!

  2. Hello, love the white pelicans. They are one of my favorites. What is the goose flying under the Canada Goose, the two look different. Maybe a Barnacle Goose, it has a white face? Great shots. Happy Tuesday, enjoy your day!

    • Hi Eileen, Likely that particular goose is a cross between the Canada and Snow Geese. Don’t know that for certain however but I think so. We had Snow Geese here a year ago so there sometimes are opportunities for that to happen. Have a great day today! Thanks for your always informative and kind comments!

  3. How cool to see and capture a Belted Kingfisher on a railing! 🙂

    • Hi Donna, Thanks! It is a very elusive bird that is hard to photograph. This bird loves perching on posts, piers, and of course, the dock rail. Have a great day today!
