Ibises at Flooded Lakes

These White Ibises were perching in low oak trees at the side of flooded Lake Mira-mar in The Villages, FL and walking around in the lake-side parking area at that same little lake.

I also saw several White Ibis walking on the grass between parts of the  flooded Boone Park on Lake Paradise also in The Villages, FL that are separated by a now flooded street.  Both lakes are still full but yes, the water is down a little.  It sure is weird seeing waterfowl and wading birds paddling and walking along through the flood water on a neighborhood street!  Those areas are pretty much off-limits so I was careful to stay where it was safe and easy to walk around.

I think the bird population is probably half what it was before Hurricane Irma here.  Just an un-scientific guess on my part. I think most fled and flew elsewhere.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of the picture.  Enjoy!
