Whistlers on Wednesday

Black-bellied Whistling Ducks are found at several of the small lakes and ponds here in The Villages, FL.  These are wild ducks but have become used to living around people in the parks and backyards near the lakes.  The Whistlers communicate via whistling calls instead of quacking like many other ducks to.  The Whistlers are probably nesting now or will be soon.

This small group was relaxing on the shoreline of Lake Paradise as seen from across the lake from Schwartz Park.  I took these pictures on Monday evening at dusk.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of the picture.  Enjoy!
