Wordless Wednesday: Wood Stork

Please click on the thumbnail image to see the very slightly larger version of the photo.  I took the picture with my cell phone.  The big bird was at Paradise Park in The Villages, FL, on 9/17/18.

Manatee Eating Romaine Lettuce

Wood Storks, a Red Wolf, a Pink Flamingo, Green Herons all were some of the wonderful Florida animals and birds seen at the Ellie Schiller Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park on August 15, 2018.  The park is a small zoo that cares for orphaned wild animals, rehabilitated wounded wild animals or captive born wild animal species that cannot live in the wild.

There are three or four naturalist-led talks or demonstrations about the animals each day.  I was fascinated to watch the Manatee Feeding talk where the naturalist told the crowd that the five Manatees at the park get fed 300 heads of Romaine Lettuce each day!  The manatee shown in the picture here was fed such lettuce and I photographed that animal via an underwater viewing portal.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of the photo.  Enjoy!

Wading Bird Wednesday: A Wood Stork on a Rainy Evening

I just took this photo of the Wood Stork about a half-hour ago at dusk on a very wet evening.  We have had a lot of rain and the lake is full.  The lake is being lowered to accommodate the extra rain we have been having.   I took the pictures at Lake Paradise in The Villages.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of the photo.  Enjoy!

Big Birds at the Golf Pond

White Pelican with Lesser Scaup ducks

White Pelicans, Lesser Scaup ducks, Double-crested Cormorants, Seagulls, a Great Blue Heron, Great Egrets, and a lone Wood Stork were all spotted yesterday afternoon at the beautiful Torri Pines golf course pond along Buena Vista Blvd. in The Villages, FL.  This spot is in a northern neighborhood here in The Villages.

The Wood Stork, the Double-crested Cormorants, Seagulls, Lesser Scaup ducks, and the White Pelicans are migratory birds from places up north and in the mid-west who have come south to enjoy our warmer weather during the harsh cold months.  By the way, last evening I spotted about 200 White Pelicans at the Freedom Pointe lake (both sides).  No pictures as I did not have my camera then.

I think a few of these pelicans pictured here were among those sleeping at Freedom Pointe as it was almost dark when I saw that huge flock last night.  We sure enjoy seeing all of these lovely birds!  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of the picture.  Enjoy!  P.S.  This pond has developed a sink hole in it today (2/15/18) and is now rapidly draining.  Don’t know when the needed repairs can be made by our community’s officials.  I will let you know when I hear more.  Wildlifewatcher.
