Fabulous Ibis

Fabulous Ibis

Fallon, Lake Carson Wetlands Reserve, NV

It's grand to find this ancient God of Egypt right here where I live, and flocks of them.
Never saw these in San Diego! Can't wait to get back out and shoot them with sunshine!

Excellent shoot! You captured the glossiness well. V

I think it is a White-faced Ibis (seehttp://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/white-faced_ibis/id). Last fall I saw one or two near UC Irvine at the San Joaquin Marsh and Wildlife Sanctuary. They were hanging out with the black-necked Stilts. They were too far to get a decent picture.

Looking forward to seeing more of these beautiful birds.
