An Amazing Sight!

DSC_0596

A gathering of Common Cormorants, Great and Snowy Egrets, White Pelicans, and Wood Storks, all in a small cove end of a large pond was an amazing sight to see!  I spotted the groups of big birds in a pond connected by a large pipe to the small neighborhood lake here.

This pond is ringed only by homes and has no public access.  I took the pictures from the street at a tiny park, a long way from where the birds were.  I am thankful that my long 150-500 lens could get the pictures.  this is a secret spot, where the birds can relax away from people for the most part.  I took the pictures at dusk on Dec. 7, 2015.  The pond has a large fountain going at full blast where the White Pelicans and many of the Common Cormorants were paddling slowly.  I also saw to my great happiness, a couple of Bufflehead Ducks!  They are my favorite ducks!  Please click on the thumbnail images to see the larger picture.  Enjoy!
