White Ibis

If you been to Florida you will have seen these fellows, they are all over the place and are not too proud to beg for food.   The White Ibis is one of 26 species around the world.   In Florida you will find the White Ibis, which has black tipped wings  you can only see this detail when they are flying, the Glossy Ibis, which has brown patches…there is also a Scarlet Ibis in southern Florida, this happens to be the national bird of Trinidad and Tobago and was introduced  to Florida either deliberately or through migration.  I’ve not see the Scarlet one but will watch for it…white.ibis.2016

    • this was at the Naples Zoo…so they were extra friendly hoping for a bit of a treat I think. They have the little feed machines a short distance from where I took this photo.
