Sandhill Cranes

A pair of sandhill cranes on the lawn behind the lake in the rotary at Morse Blvd in the Villages FL in April of 2012. 

The male is on the left he got very protective of the female when he saw me taking pictures and came out to join her.  He even put on a little display by puffing out his chest and flapping his wings for a bit.

Wood Stork

As near as I have been able to identify this bird is as a wood stork.  It was photographed in October 2011 along a pond in Central Florida.

White Ibis

This White Ibis opens up to show you the black tips on the wings.  You generally do not see the black tips unless they are in flight.  The photo was taken as the Ibis stretchedon a bench near a pond in Central Florida in October 2011.
