An Inquisitive Blue Jay

This inquisitive Eastern Blue Jay was spying on the goings-on in the parking lot next to Lake Miramar in The Villages, Florida, yesterday late in the afternoon.  Blue Jays are pretty intelligent birds and I think are often interested in what is happening around them.

I also think that the medium-sized songbird was investigating the fact that the White Ibis crowd and Seagulls in the park, were being hand fed by well-meaning (still should not be happening) tourist children.  Maybe the Blue Jay had even been in on the goodies.  Who knows?  After a few moments, the jay flew off to other adventures elsewhere.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of the photo.  Enjoy!







Ducks at Veteran’s Park, The Villages, FL


A few white domestic Pekin Ducks, a lone Mallard drake, and a bunch of hybrid mixes (likely Muscovy and Pekin or Mallard and Pekin) were all happily strolling around the peaceful shoreline of the pond end of Lake Miramar at the Veteran’s Park in The Villages, Florida, near Spanish Springs Square.

I spotted the ducks late in the afternoon this past Sunday.  Several ducks were resting under the Rhododendron bushes.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger version.   Enjoy!
