White Ibis


Hello,

This week I am sharing and featuring the White Ibis for my Wild Bird and Nature Notes post. The White Ibis was a common bird seen all around Florida. I believe some have been seen in the Mid-Atlantic states.




As you can see this White Ibis has white plumage and pink face skin. The adults have black tipped wings, visible in flight.



It is said their range is from Virginia and west to Texas and is very common in Florida.




Seen below are the White Ibis mixed with the Wood Storks, Heron, Swans and ducks.



A juvenile White Ibis can be seen below with the brownish feathers.







Thank you for stopping by and as always I appreciate your comments.

My list of memes for today, I hope to see you there. Thanks to both of the host below.

  31. Hello Eileen, I was looking for some interesting blogs to follow and came across your and your lovely photographs. I use a Cannon Powershot SX 40 too and love it. Unfortunately I'm too lazy a lot of the time and don't take it with me when I go out so miss out on some great and interesting shots. I look forward to seeing more of your posts.

  42. Hi Eileen

    The white ibis is such a striking looking bird with its pure white feathers and red beak and legs.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I haven't seen an ibis with red legs before. The ones from home usually have black legs.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Beautiful photos Eileen!
    That is a lot of long legs.

    ReplyDelete
  45. What an unusual bird! Nice photos, as usual.

    ReplyDelete
  46. It looks awesome. It's pure white.:)

    ReplyDelete
  47. In the first photo it almost looks as if the bird is knee deep in mud, sort of. Neat photos though anyway. hope you are enjoying the week so far :-)

  50. I love to see the White Ibis when ever I've been in Florida, especially when they are in flight with their black wing tips. Amazing to see such a mix all feeding togeather, there's a message for the world there.
    Take care, Gordon.

  51. We have 3 species of ibis here - two common and one less so. I'll see if I can get some pictures.

  57. Those birds are all beautiful. My favorite picture is of all the different types of birds together :)

  58. Beautiful capture on the white ibises… we get to see only black headed ibises here, and it’s really wonderful to check the details on white ibis here. The juvenile is quite different from adult

    ReplyDelete
  59. Hello Eileen,
    Although they are common, the White ibses are gorgeous birds!
    Funny how juveniles can be so different from the adults!
    Warm hugs and take care :)

  63. I've only seen the White Ibis and Storks in Florida many years ago. They are such a beautiful bird. That park, by the way, looks way fun to bird!

    ReplyDelete
  64. "Our" wood storks always arrive in June. I should go to the areas they frequent and maybe I can find some. Thanks for the reminder.

    Your ibis are clearly in breeding colors with the deep red bill and feet/legs.

    We get daily visit from group of 20+ ibis. Yesterday, most of them laid down flat on the ground spread eagle. Never saw this and cannot find one photo on the web. Any clue what this means?
    I will take pix if this ever happens again.
