Just another WordPress.com weblog about Nature and Wildlife

The migratory White Pelicans and Double-crested Cormorants are gathering together to get ready for the long journey back up North.  These birds are feasting on fish and frogs to gain strength for the flight back home to their breeding grounds.  I think quite a few of these birds have already left our area.  Last year we only had about six pelicans stay over all-year long.

I spotted the pelicans and cormorants at the Nancy Lopez Legacy Golf Course driving range pond and also at Freedom Pointe Lake here in The Villages, FL.  These are two spots where the pelicans and cormorants return to every year it seems.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of the picture.  Enjoy!
