Whistlers on Wednesday

These Black-bellied Whistling Ducks, or “Whistlers” were spotted here in The Villages, FL in a grassy area just coming out of a golf cart tunnel near Lake Sumter and Morse.  I took the pictures at about 6:00pm last night.  These are such cheery cute ducks that I always enjoy seeing them.  The small flock was grazing on tasty insects as the grass had just recently been cut and it had rained a little earlier in the day.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of the picture.  Enjoy!

  1. Looks like everything in your area is back to normal after the hurricane. That is GOOD…. We are home from a wonderful trip out west…

    Great pictures of the Whistlers.

    • Hi Betsy, Starting to be fine here – we are having lots of debris picked up by large machines and trucks taking such off to be burned (in big safe pits). Have a wonderful day! Many thanks about the Whistlers.

  2. Yes, it’s good to see things getting back to normal there.

    • Hi Montucky, I agree! Now, it that pesky new hurricane wanna be – hope not to be- goes away, yes, everything will be fine here. Have a great day and thanks for your always kind and appreciated comments!

  3. Hello, I always loved the Whistling Ducks. Every time I see them I think of Theresa in Texas. Great photos. Happy Wednesday, enjoy your day!
