Merry Migratory Ducks

Lesser Scaup Ducks

Hooded Mergansers, Northern Shovelers, Mallards, and Lesser Scaup Ducks are all here in The Villages, Florida right now.  I was out and about bird watching at a few local small lakes and golf course ponds and saw many small flocks of these migratory Winter visitors.
