Fresh Out of the Camera: Wading Birds

White Ibis at Silver Lake Park Pond

This evening here in The Villages, FL, I took a bunch of photographs of various wading birds, water birds, and waterfowl at several small ponds and small lakes.  We had a partial view of the Solar Eclipse yesterday but it only got a little dim; about like it would be at say, 6:00PM here (same as when I snapped these photographs tonight).  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of the photo.  Enjoy!

Rainy Weather and a Full Lake!

Ornamental Waterfalls at Paradise Lake in The Villages, FL

The wildlife such as White Ibis, Great Blue Herons, Mottled Ducks, all are enjoying a much fuller Lake Paradise in The Villages, FL this week.  I am thrilled that the little park lake is now full of water and the ornamental waterfalls are turned back on.  Lots of beautiful local scenery.

This park lake has seen a huge variety of birds visit.  The White Ibis, Great Blue Heron, Canada Geese, Great Egrets, Snowy Egrets, Mottled Ducks, Mallard Ducks and Black-bellied Whistling Ducks are resident birds.  We also get visits by White Pelicans, Bald Eagles, Osprey, Bufflehead Ducks, Coots, Hooded Mergansers, Egyptian Geese, Try-colored Herons, Sandhill Cranes, Wood Storks, Muscovy Ducks; Lesser Scaups, Yellowlegs, Kildeer, Anhingas, Double-belted Kingfishers, and occasionally a few other types of wild ducks such as Teal, Wood Ducks, White Pekin Ducks, and others.  It is a really nifty spot to bird watch but the birds do come and go so one never knows how many varieties of birds one will see.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of the picture.
