Just another WordPress.com weblog about Nature and Wildlife

These two White Pelicans are among a small number of their large flock that did not follow the flock back up North in late Spring this year.  Unusual.  I think the birds like the environment here in The Villages, Florida!

I spotted these two (most days there are four pelicans) at the Nancy Lopez Legacy Golf Course driving range pond (on the country club side this time).  I photographed the birds from the opposite shore while I also captured pictures of those Egyptian Geese I featured here a few days ago.  Yes, that is a Snowy Egret flying past one of the pelicans.

These pelicans eat fish and are usually in the company of Double-crested Cormorants.  I only spotted a single cormorant that day at the pond.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of the photo.  Enjoy!
