Birds Here and There

Probably a Red-shouldered Hawk

A Snowy Egret, a couple of Great Blue Herons, and surprisingly, a hawk (probably a Red Shouldered Hawk but hard to tell) were all spotted here in The Villages, Florida, last evening at about 5:30.

I spotted the egret at Lake Paradise, the Great Blue Herons at Lake Paradise and Lake Mira-mar, and the hawk at a lamp-post on Morse Blvd. near Rio Grande.  Always fun to spot the hawks as they are not as frequently seen as are all the big wading and water birds here.  I also spotted several Wood Storks which I will feature in a coming post.  Always something to see here!  So much fun!  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of the picture.  Enjoy!
