White Ibis


White Ibis, originally uploaded by Elizabeth Smith.

White Ibis

These large and beautiful wetland birds wander from time to time through residential settings, along with the common Cattle Egrets. Ibis always seem to travel in numbers, though, and it’s quite a spectacular sight to see a large flock foraging in moist low grassy spots, then moving along at a brisk pace.

If you’d like to read more about the White Ibis, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission has a nice information sheet available online:
