Surprise Visitors!

Two Roseate Spoonbills visited the shore of Lake Paradise in The Villages, Florida, this afternoon!  I took these pictures at dusk and from across the lake so I had to crop the shot to allow you to better see the bird.  These are quite rare here in Lake County, FL!

This is the first time I have seen spoonbills in The Villages!   We actually had a crowd of wading birds at Lake Paradise today.  There were many Great Egrets, Double-crested Cormorants, Snowy Egrets, the Roseate Spoonbills, seven Wood Storks, many White Ibis, and even a Great Blue Heron.  Wow!  Very unusual.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of the picture.  Enjoy!
