White Ibis

This is my final installment of my "Florida Birds" series, and it features the White Ibis.

That beak seems a little unwieldy, to say the least; but I guess it works for the ibis. I read that this bird is a non-visual forager, probing with its beak at the bottom of shallow water, and finding its prey by feel rather than by sight.
 
Don't we live in an interesting world?

  1. Great photos, LInda! I love the one where he's flying. Interesting that he doesn't see his dinner.
    I suppose that could sometimes be a blessing though. ;)

  13. Great shots again, Linda! So clear and great color. Reminds me of a poem I read in school, but I think that was the Red Ibis. :)
