One of the two black neck swans at the lake.
Posing for pictures.
The red-headed duck is back for the winter.
He was hanging around the ring neck ducks. I haven’t seen a female one with him.
He’s a handsome one. I hate that he doesn’t have a mate.
There’s a handful of white pelicans that hang out at this lake during the winter. They stick together and don’t come running for a handout when people come to feed the ducks.
Such a pretty face.
Settling down for an afternoon nap.
Coots have cool feet.
I’ve been stopping by Lake Morton in Lakeland after my walk at Circle B Bar Reserve lately. Since it’s only 10 minutes away, it’s a quick walk around the lake before I head back to Tampa. The small lake is full of fowl! Ducks, geese, swans, white pelicans, coots, ibis, great blue herons and lots of different gulls.
