More fowl than fish.

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.

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.

  1. Love your Coot photo! I’ve trying to get a good photo of the Coot’s feet, but here they spend most of their time in the water. Lovely pelican photos, too!
