Great Egrets

These Great Egrets were seen at Golf View Lake (a pond) and at Lake Paradise at Boone Park here in The Villages on Tuesday, February 11, 2020.  The large egrets were there at the pond on the shore of a golf course, along with about fifteen or so Snowy Egrets.

There must be quite good fishing at Golf View Lake now,  as it is unusual to see so many egrets at one small pond’s shoreline.  This pond is a few blocks from two small lakes.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of the photo.  Enjoy!

 

Great Egrets in Yards and Landscaped Areas

Great Egrets are most often seen around ponds lakes rivers and marshes but occasionally they hunt in residential neighborhoods here in Florida and in other semi-tropical areas in the USA.  This is especially true here in The Villages, FL, where there are many small ponds and lakes located in residential areas (mostly golf ponds).  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of the photo.   Enjoy!
