hello...The American white ibis (Eudocimus albus) is a species of bird in the ibis family, Threskiornithidae. It is found from Virginia via the Gulf Coast of the United States south through most of the coastal New World tropics.[2] This particular ibis is a medium-sized bird with an overall white plumage, bright red-orange down-curved bill and long legs, and black wing tips that are usually only visible in flight. Males are larger and have longer bills than females. The breeding range runs along the Gulf and Atlantic Coast, and the coasts of Mexico and Central America. Outside the breeding period, the range extends further inland in North America and also includes the Caribbean. It is also found along the northwestern South American coastline in Colombia and Venezuela. Populations in central Venezuela overlap and interbreed with the scarlet ibis. The two have been classified by some authorities as a single species. wiki source

Hello Dale,
what a beautiful and unique scenery is this! Great the view of the gathering of all these American white ibis in the pond of the lagoon,with their red heads and feet create this special contrast.Well done.


Hello Dale,
Fantastic birds with their red legs, beaks and faces in these green surroundings. The contrasts of red, white end green are superb. The one caught in flight is superbly placed near the corner, where it gives a good balance to the photo.
Best wishes,
