Just another WordPress.com weblog about Nature and Wildlife

Bald Eagles, Osprey, Great Blue Herons, Great Egrets, Snowy Egrets, Wood Storks, Anhingas, Little Blue Herons, Trio-colored Herons, White Ibis, Glossy Ibis, Double-crested Cormorants, Sandhill Cranes, Mottled Ducks, Muscovy Ducks, Mallard Ducks and Black-bellied Whistling Ducks all have been spotted at the lovely pond at the El Santiago Golf Course in The Villages, Fl this year.

I often can spot several larger birds here and am usually rewarded with good sightings.  There is easy access to the pond from Enrique Drive or the recreation center’s parking lot.  By the way, the Bald Eagles sometimes perch on the electric line towers both on the golf course and just down the street.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of the picture.  Enjoy!
