Just another WordPress.com weblog about Nature and Wildlife

This American White Ibis was spotted strolling around lawns here on my street.  It was alone which is pretty unusual.  Last weekend, I had spotted a small flock of American White Ibises about two  blocks from my home, down in a rainfall retention basin.  I did not see any other Ibises when this Ibis was here on Tuesday.

Ibis like to root around in the grass for bugs and worms with their spongy bill.  That is exactly what this rather pleasant and most comical-looking Ibis was doing.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of the picture.  Enjoy!

  1. Cool captures of the White Ibis! I always thought it was neat to see these birds walking around the different Florida neighborhoods. Have a happy Friday and weekend ahead!

  2. It must be interesting to see a bird like that just strolling around. That would be a front page story in this part of the country!

    • Hi Montucky, Of course, even here in Florida, the American Ibis can be seldom seen in neighborhoods. They mostly though, are near places with ponds or lakes. Yes, it would be front page news for an Ibis to be walking around in the mountains! Have a fantastic day!

  3. such neat birds. 🙂

  4. I want to wish all Dad’s a very Happy Father’s Day on Sunday!
