A great blue heron on the 6th and 7th fairways on The Villages Golf Course. These are not common visitors...I see less than one a year. There are six pictures showing it in flight and its plumage in different lights. Go to https://www.flickr.com/photos/loualexander/49405067607

This is the second year in a row we have had a leucistic wild turkey.

Leucism (/ˈluːsɪzəm, -kɪz-/) is a condition in which there is partial loss of pigmentation in an animal—which causes white, pale, or patchy coloration of the skin, hair, feathers, scales or cuticle, but not the eyes.

This is a frenzy of hornets eating something just off our patio. I could not see what they were eating. In this picture the one by itself in the upper left has torn off a chunk and is eating it.

This is a killdeer, not a bird I typically see along the Villages' water features. I had spotted a large flock of them the previous week but they flew off before I could get a picture.

Two or three nights in a row early this week two flocks of wild turkeys had a 30 minute +/- fight in back of our house. I think they were battling over rights to feed under the oak trees. If you got to flickr at https://www.flickr.com/photos/loualexander/48992863628/in/album-72157621131669696/ there is a 3 minute video of the fight and six more still pictures.

A young bobcat that I scared the dickens out of when I went out the backdoor to check on my fire in the Weber. It was messing around in the leaves about 20 feet off the patio and raced down the hill when it saw me. You can get an idea of its size from the fence behind it.

I am pretty sure this is a variety of paper wasp. They are very common around here, building nest high up in the eaves on houses. They do sting but are not generally aggressive unless threatened. This one was struggling on the patio but apparently recovered because when I looked later it was gone.

A mother bobcat went up the hill behind our house this morning about 6:30. It was still pretty dark but I managed to get three usable pictures.

There was not much light and the cubs were moving so the quality is not great but it was a very cool scene. Follow this link to flickr and then scroll right using the > to the right of each picture to see the cubs.

These are acorn woodpeckers. They are preparing a "granary" to store acorns to eat in the months ahead. The one on the right has pecked out a hole and is holding an acorn to put in it.

They are amazing creatures who spend late summer/fall gathering acorns so they can eat them all winter. They store the acorns in holes the make is trees. This is a tree near the 7th tee on The Villages Golf course.
