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!
