This adult American White Ibis was seen perched briefly in the Pine Tree across the street from my home on Monday, June 29, 2015. The smart bird sought the protection of the Pine when it heard a peal of thunder! The Ibis had likely recently been in the rainfall retention basin below that very tree, and hunting for insects or worms, before the booming began.
