A Wild Time at the Golf Course Water Hazard!

DSC_2769

White Pelicans, a Sandhill Crane, Northern Shoveler Ducks, a Great Egret, Double Crested Cormorants and Lesser Yellowlegs all joined the mob of Seagulls in the fray trying to find a lunch meal at a local golf course water hazard pond.  I estimate that there were well over one hundred White Pelicans in two big groups there in the large pond.  That Sandhill Crane landed right in front of a home with statues of large wading birds!  How fun!

Additionally, I spotted a male Boat-tailed Grackle perched on the roof of our car!  I took these pictures on January 17, 2016 at the Belle Glade Golf Course pond in The Villages, Florida.  I was there at the pond on a shoreline knoll, observing for about twenty minutes, and had such a great time seeing all the action!  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture.  Enjoy!
