Some Avian Villagers

Drake Hooded Merganser Duck

Tai-Colored Herons, Wood Storks, Hooded Merganser Ducks, Sandhill Cranes, White Ibis, Double-Crested Cormorants, Anhingas, and many more large exotic birds are seen here in The Villages, Florida on and in our many ponds and small lakes.  It also is not unusual to see a Great Egret strolling through the shrubbery on street parkways.

There are always many varieties of large and small birds around this community and its many neighborhoods to observe!  It is such a pleasant hobby to go out bird watching!  I am sure many of the readers here will agree!  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of the photo!  Enjoy!

  1. These are all good, but I just love the picture of the Anhinga!

    • Hi Montucky, Thanks! I like that photo too. Anhingas hunt in the water by diving (called water snake birds because of their long neck). They cannot fly with wet wings so they keep outstretched wings or flap their wings while perched next to the water’s edge on a low branch or a section of large pipe or a big boulder. Have a great weekend and thanks for your always appreciated comments.
