Shore Birds and a Glossy Ibis

Lesser Yellowlegs

Lesser Yellowlegs are shore birds that in addition to being around the ocean, do frequent fresh water marshes and shallow fresh water ponds.  They occasionally visit our community and were spotted with the Glossy Ibis at a nearly empty rainfall retention basin pond at the Souliere Villas in Marion County, FL at The Villages.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of the photo.  Enjoy!
