White Pelicans stop here in The Villages, Florida during their Winter migration. I really love seeing the big gatherings of the huge beautiful birds! I saw this flock fishing as a group in a pond on Pinellas Drive here at the Evans Prairie wetlands area, on Saturday, April 9, 2016. There also were Double Crested Cormorants, Great Egrets, a Great Blue Heron, and a couple of Little Blue Herons plus ducks and coots around! What a mob!
I don’t think this is the same flock I had seen a couple of weeks ago in the North end of the community on El Camino Real. I am always so pleased when I see the White Pelicans, which by the way, are mostly fresh water-loving birds. Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of the picture. Enjoy!
