Just another WordPress.com weblog about Nature and Wildlife

Great Egret and Mottle Ducks

Great Egrets with Florida Mottled Ducks, a Wood Stork, and a small Tri-colored Heron were spotted here in The Villages, FL on a couple of lakes and small ponds.  We have a number of wading bird species that are all-year around resident birds here.  The community has many ponds and small lakes in addition to a few fresh water marshes and preserves.  There is plenty of food between the water and the many areas of landscaping along the streets and parking lots.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of the picture.  Enjoy!
