Wood Storks

Wood Storks

Tuscawilla Park in Ocala, Florida has two medium-sized ponds that have a variety of water birds, and wading birds in and around them.  I was there at Tuscawilla Park on Thursday, Feb. 9, 2017 in the afternoon for about five minutes.  No, I did not see hundreds of birds as I have in past visits during the Winter months.  Many birds have gone elsewhere on their migratory journey.

I did see several Great Egrets, a couple of Wood Storks, Snowy Egrets, a lot of White Ibis, a lot of Common Cormorants, a few Wood Ducks, a few Muscovy Ducks and a Great Blue Heron.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of the picture.  Enjoy!

  1. Hello, wonderful post and photos. The Wood Storks are a favorite of mine. The White Ibis seem to be all over the place and in large groups. I remember visiting that park a few years ago, it was very birdy there. Have a happy day and week ahead!

    • Hi Eileen, Yes, nice old city park with the ponds and all the birds around. There are sometimes Bald Eagles there as well but I did not see any when I visited last week. Glad you got to visit the park there a few years back. Your area also is “Bird-y”. Florida is a wonderful spot for all types of bird watching. Have a great day today!

  2. You really do have some excellent birds in your area!
