These Great Egrets were seen at Golf View Lake (a pond) and at Lake Paradise at Boone Park here in The Villages on Tuesday, February 11, 2020. The large egrets were there at the pond on the shore of a golf course, along with about fifteen or so Snowy Egrets.
There must be quite good fishing at Golf View Lake now, as it is unusual to see so many egrets at one small pond’s shoreline. This pond is a few blocks from two small lakes. Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of the photo. Enjoy!
