Canada Geese

Egyptian Geese, and Canada Geese are the two types of geese seen commonly here in The Villages, FL. The Canada Geese are the larger population with some ponds seeing twenty or more individuals.  There perhaps are about fifteen Egyptian Geese here as well.

Interestingly, there are a few hybrid Canada Geese around that are likely a mix of Greylag or Chinese White and Canada.  These geese eat grass and some aquatic plants.  The also love grains.  We have a solid population of all of these geese here all year around.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of the picture.  Enjoy!

What Did I See at the Nancy Lopez Legacy Golf Course in The Villages, FL Today?

A flock of Double-crested Cormorants; several Wood Storks; a flock of Canada Geese; several Egyptian Geese; a lot of Mottled Ducks; a few Great Egrets; a few Snowy Egrets; a few Mallard Ducks; and a small pod of White Pelicans.  I also spotted a Southern Bald Eagle up on a nearby electrical tower.   Today’s post is part one of two showcasing all these birds.  I will show part 2 on Friday.

Our migratory Winter visitors, the true “Snow birds” are coming in droves daily here.  I spotted all these birds on the driving range pond of the beautiful Nancy Lopez Legacy Golf Course here in The Villages, FL today.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of the picture.  Enjoy!
