Ready? one, two, three... let's go !!
These are Black Bellied Ducks and supposedly they are here in Central Florida. However, I've not seen them before a week ago.
They are here by the hundreds around the pond .. Sitting on my deck was just a few .. They whistle and the noise is deafening when they all chime in... I love it. !
Here on this very small lake there are so many waterbirds every day.
Great Blue Herons, Egrets, Ibis, Roseate Spoonbills ... just to name a few... Sights like these are why we Floridians put up with the heat of the summer... No, I wasn't born here, but have lived here since 1969. Take away the 2+ years I lived in San Francisco.
But that still makes me a native..
