Just another WordPress.com weblog about Nature and Wildlife

Waterfowl Wednesday

Whistling Ducks, and Mallard Ducks were both spotted here in The Villages, FL this past Sunday.  I was happy to see the Black-bellied Whistling Ducks at the marsh where I also had spotted many egrets.  I also saw the Mallards there.  Lake Paradise has a bunch of Mottled Ducks and Mallard Ducks right now.

Later in the Winter, there will be a lot of other breeds of migrating ducks here on our many ponds and lakes.  I so enjoy watching the ducks.  By the way, most of this bunch of Whistlers were juveniles with their bluish-pink bills, legs and feet!  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of the picture.  Enjoy!

  1. You must be right of the verge of seeing lots of new feathers and faces as the fall migrations begin.

    • Hi Montucky, I hope so. I miss seeing a lot of the little birds. Nothing wrong with all these larger ones (the big ones are a lot easier to photograph too). Saw a bunch of Wood Storks on the local neighborhood lake this am but no camera handy. Have a tremendous day tomorrow and enjoy the gorgeous mountain scenery!
