    I think you are correct on the i.d. What a great find for this area!
  3. If we have a immature I'm pretty sure there are parents around. According to my map they are about 200 miles off course.

    I saw a juvi White Ibis in the swamp next of the Eagle tree on the N side of the dam about a year ago. At the time, I thought that it had gotten blown here by one of the tropical storms that had just gone through the SE. Maybe not, huh?

    Good catch. I guess we need to keep our eyes peeled. :smile:

    Nice shot
    We have many of these at different stages of brown and white feathers.
  7. They are Rare here, in fact this is the first one I've seen in this area.
  8. Nice catch Gary. Seems that you're attracting all the birds to your neighborhood.

    I was surprised when it came in being chased by a green heron.
