Whistlers on Wednesday: Paradise Lake

I spotted this cute pair of Black-bellied Whistling Ducks at Schwartz Park on Lake Paradise in The Villages, Fl last evening at about 6:00pm.  I spotted the two ducks waddling down the slope of a lake-front back yard to the lake to sip some water and then slowly waddle back up that same yard to the shrubbery.  I am thinking the pair are nesting in the bushes.  I always enjoy seeing these cute brown and pink ducks!  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of the photo.  Enjoy!

Scenes from Lake Paradise

 

Canada Geese and their goslings, Anhingas, Black-bellied Whistling Ducks, hybrid Mallard Ducks, Grey Squirrels, a medium-sized turtle, and a Great Blue Heron were all spotted at twilight on Saturday at Lake Paradise in The Villages, Florida.

You may be able to spot the goslings in one photo I took.  That family of geese was on the opposite far shoreline so I had to edit the picture quite a bit to get a good look at the fluff-ball babies.  There also were a few Black-bellied Whistling Ducks beside the proud mother and father geese.  Right now it is quite around here due to nesting season and very windy weather.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of the picture.  Enjoy!
