Big White Birds!

White Pelicans on Lake Paradise this past Spring

The Wood Storks, Great Egrets, White Ibis, Cattle Egrets, White Pelicans, and Snowy Egrets are all large white-colored wading birds/water birds .  I did not add in the various white geese, swans, or ducks because I seldom see these birds here in The Villages, FL.

By the way, I saw three very placid Wood Storks on the parking lot next to Lake Mira-mar last night at dinner time.  Unusual to see more than two at a time but yes, that area is a hot spot for big bird hand-outs (not good for people to feed these exotic birds).  We continue to have intermittent rain showers and thunderstorms here so I have not been out to bird watch with the camera in a few days.  Hope to be out and about soon!  I will post what new pictures I do take in coming days.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of the picture.  Enjoy!
