Today’s post features a number of photographs I took of White-eyed Ibises, both juveniles and adults, at the Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge on Sanibel Island, Florida.  I took these pictures from the roadway and from an observation tower.

Laughing Gulls and a Great Egret joined the Ibises at times and perhaps were interested in  trying to grab the good food from them.  There was a feeding frenzy going on with hundreds of wading and sea birds there in the lagoon.  These birds were feeding on snails, and other small salt marsh aquatic creatures during the out-going tidal change. I took these pictures on Jan. 29, 2013.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture.  Enjoy!
