Avery Island Wildlife - pam-and-edmund-mcilhenny

American White Ibis, a different species from the White-faced Ibis in the previous photo, are known for their all-white plumage except for black wingtips, and during breading season, their bright red bills, faces, and legs. Though they are common in coastal marshy wetlands, Edmund and I haven't seen them before 2011 on Avery Island. They are monogamous, and often nest in colonies with other species of wading birds.
