Lake Eola in Orlando contains several exotic species of waterfowl, but I’d never gone there to see them . I had to drive near there today, and wasn’t sure what to expect, but I thought I’d see what I could find. I was surprised to find a Black-necked Swan, a swan that is native to South America. I know exotic species can be detrimental to native wildlife in many ways, but I must confess that it’s still fun to see this bird.
