An American White Ibis Visits

DSC_4353

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!
