Florida Mottled Ducklings have been spotted here in The Villages, Florida at a small parkland pond on Morse Ave. near Live Oaks Park (on the golf cart path side).  By the way, I saw an amazing number of different types of water birds such as a Great Blue Heron, a white phase Little Blue Heron, a small flock of Black-bellied Whistling Ducks, a pair of Sandhill Cranes and a Glossy Ibis in addition to the mama Florida Mottled Duck and her youngsters at this pond!

My husband and I spent a really fabulous few moments at the pond taking pictures and then we were on our way home (did not want to disturb the birds who were feeding).  I so enjoy bird watching here in my community!  I took these pictures on Saturday, April 30, 2016 late in the afternoon.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of the picture.  Enjoy!
