Ibis, Herons, and a Snowy

Tri-colored Heron

These White Ibis were laying down which I had never seen before.  Generally when resting, these wading birds perch in trees.  Amazing.  I suspect this behavior helps protect the birds during hurricanes as maybe they lay under shrubbery to stay out of the high winds.  Who knows?  The photographs were taken last weekend here in The Villages, FL.  I also spotted the Trio-colored-colored Heron and Great Blue Heron at Lake Mira-mar.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of the photo.  Enjoy!
