Big exotic birds and and a tiny Palm Warbler songbird, all were spotted here in The Villages, FL, at several ponds and smaller lakes this past week.  It is always such fun to take the camera and go see what animals and birds can be found on any given day.  I saw these at Paradise Lake, The Freedom Pointe Lake, and the Walmart ponds on CR466 at Buffalo Ridge.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of the picture.  Enjoy!

Some of the More Unusual Birds That Have Visited Us

Limpkin

Roseate Spoonbills, Sandhill Cranes, Wood Storks, Limpkins, a Black Crowned Night Heron, Egyptian Geese, White-phase Little Blue Herons,  and Green Herons have all been photographed in freshwater marshes (sometimes referred to as “Prairies”), ponds, and small lakes here in or near The Villages, Florida.  I love seeing these birds!

The Roseate Spoonbill (only seen here once in the four years I have lived here, the Black-crowned and White Little Blue Heron have to be the most seldom seen here of all of the above mentioned wading birds.  The most common are the Wood Storks and Sandhill Cranes among the ones I am featuring today.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of the picture.  Enjoy!
