Just another WordPress.com weblog about Nature and Wildlife

A flock of White Pelicans was spotted tonight at sunset at Freedom Pointe Lake in The Villages, Florida.  This group of birds is about half of the number seen in this area a few weeks ago.  Many of these migratory birds have already left for the Spring and Summer.

This spot on the lake is the favorite place for the White Pelicans and their friends, the Double-crested Cormorants to spend the evening to sleep (the cormorants head to the nearby Oak Trees to roost).  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of the picture.  Enjoy!

  1. Presumably that’s a safe place to sleep?

    • Hi Montucky, Probably so. I also noticed a lone Canada Goose among that throng. I think several of the birds stand guard through the night as we occasionally do see Coyotes here. Have a great weekend!

  2. Hello, the pelicans are one of my favorite birds. Great sighting and photos. Enjoy your weekend!

    • Hi Eileen, Thanks! I like the pelicans as well. It was good that I got those snap-shots last night because the flock has flown. Only a big bunch of cormorants and a couple of herons there this afternoon when I stopped there at that lake after lunch. Have a great weekend!
