I is for the White-faced Ibis !

A dark wading bird with a long, down-curved bill, the White-faced Ibis is a western replacement for the Glossy Ibis. Similar in appearance and habits, the two species can be distinguished only by slight differences in coloring of the face and legs.
You can go to this link to see and hear the Ibis. 
It is a lovely bird to watch.
Enjoy your day!


  1. What a striking looking bird. I'd love to see one of those sometime.

  2. The wading birds are wonderful to watch. Happy Friday!

  3. I remember seeing scarlet ibises in a zoo. It was a gorgeous sight.

  4. I think I'm more familiar with Glossy, these White-faced do not ring a bell. Funny sound!

  5. I always thought of ibises as African birds. This is the first time finding out they are also not only in the US, but out my way! I have never seen one though. Herons and egrets, yes, but no ibises.

  6. The old woman was only reading yesterday about the old Turkish legend that the ibis was one of the first birds that Noah released from the Ark as a symbol of fertility. She was delighted to see this picture.
