A Visit at the Sharon Rose Wiechens Preserve

Common Coot

Ring-necked Ducks, a Little Blue Heron, a beautiful Purple Gallinule, a few Common Moorhens, several Pied-billed Grebes, an Anhinga, and a Common Coot were spotted at the lovely gem of a nature preserve, the Sharon Rose Wiechens Nature Preserve here in The Villages, Florida on Friday, Dec. 28, 2018.

I often see the Common Moorhens and in season coots at this preserve.  Less commonly seen are the Ring-Necked Ducks (all hens), the grebes, and the Little Blue Heron.  I also frequently see Osprey in the area as the lake is a medium-sized one with lots of wildlife and fish.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of that particular photo.  Enjoy!

Some Water Birds and Mottled Ducks

A Great Egret in the Cypress Tree, a Tri-color Heron, an Anhinga, a juvenile White Ibis with a Little Blue Heron were all spotted at Freedom Pointe Lake and at the nearby Hacienda Golf Course pond here in The Villages, FL on a recent afternoon.  All are interesting birds!

The egrets were up in the trees due to it being cloudy with a very good chance of thunderstorms to happen (it did rain about a half-hour later).  These birds were very close to the multi-modal golf cart paths that skirt many ponds and lakes here.  It affords me a good chance to spot birds up close.  Handy for taking pictures!  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of the photo.  Enjoy!

A Potpourri of Wildlife in The Villages, FL

Pied-billed Grebe

An American Alligator, a Pied-billed Grebe, White Ibis, a couple of Anhinga birds, a Tri-colored Heron, a couple of Great Blue Herons were spotted in The Villages, Florida last week on Monday, October 15, 2018.  I saw most of these birds at the Freedom Point Lakes on Morse Blvd.  I spotted the Alligator I call “Hacienda Harry”,  and the Anhinga in the tree, at the Hacienda Golf Course Pond on the multi-modal trail.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of each picture.  Enjoy!
