Just another WordPress.com weblog about Nature and Wildlife

A largish flock of perhaps seventy or so, Black-bellied Whistling Ducks or “Whistlers” as they are also known, came in waves the other evening to feed along the shore of Paradise Lake in The Villages, FL.  I enjoy seeing the flock and hearing their lovely whistle calls.

I was amazed that group after group kept coming in from the Spanish Springs, Lake Miramar area (nearby across the highway).  I was too far away from where the ducks were feeding to get clear shots so I am just including the shots of the ducks in flight mostly.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of the picture.  Enjoy!
