Water Birds

White Ibis at Lake Mira-mar

I spotted these water birds last weekend in The Villages, Fl at Lake Mira-mar at Spanish Springs, and the lovely little golf course pond at El Santiago Golf Course on Enrique Drive.  Both spots are places I often can spot a few (or more) water birds and wading birds such as White Ibis, Sandhill Cranes, Snowy Egrets, and Anhingas.  The golf course was being worked on and golf was not happening while I was there.

By the way, I occasionally spot Wood Storks and Bald Eagles at the area around the El Santiago golf course pond.  It is a pleasure to visit the pond on Enrique Drive and try to see if there are eagles or storks around.  The eagles are sometimes spotted up on the electric line towers there at the course, and about a block or two down the street.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of the picture.  Enjoy!
