I have selected favorite photographs I have taken in Florida in the last three years to share here today.  I tend to love Wood Storks, all the different woodpeckers, assorted ducks, and the various herons and egret,s the best!  I hope you will like seeing these old favorites!

Pictures of Several Kinds of Herons

Green Heron, Dunnellon, FL

Green Heron

Here are some of the various kinds of herons I have spotted here in Florida.  I have seen the common Great Blue Heron; the Great White Heron; the Little Blue Heron in both the blue and the white phases; the Tri-colored Heron; and the Green Heron.  I have not photographed a Yellow-crowned Night Heron but I did spot one at Sanibel Island a couple of years ago.

Around The Villages, Florida area, I often see the Great Blue Herons, the Little Blue Herons and the Tri-colored Herons.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of the photo.  Enjoy!

Herons, Wood Storks, Anhingas, ibises, geese, egrets, and ducks all were hunting for their dinner at a small park lake in The Villages, Florida on August 27, 2015 in the early evening.  This little lake is near a  vibrant business and entertainment area as well as many residences.  The lake is beloved and so are the birds!

Whenever I go to this lake, I am always rewarded with seeing many larger birds.  It is fun to watch all the action.  I suspect that as the Fall turns to Winter, more birds will flock to the general area. There are several small and medium-sized lakes in this  community.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger picture.  Enjoy!

A Green Heron, Alligator, and Gorgeous Scenery in Dunnellon, FL

DSC_2691 - Version 2

A Green Heron in breeding plumage, was spotted perching on a low overhanging tree along the banks of a large freshwater pond in the Blue Run Park in Dunnellon, FL on April 17, 2015.  The pond is next to the Withlacoochie River and has several Alligators in it.

I had spotted a pair of River Otters in this same pond last year.  There is a bike trail on one side of the pond next to the river, and a looping trail around the pond.  It is a short level hike that is fun and scenic.  I have included a picture of the river with Cypress Tree “Knees”.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture.  Enjoy!
