Glossy Ibis – DE

IMG_2477 IMG_2639Glossy Ibis – Plegadis falcinellus

This bird was incredibly hard to photograph. Being dark with a lighter background made the contrast difficult to focus. These are the two best. This was from the great Tuesday trip to Bombay Hook.

There were so many birds last Tuesday, I wish I could take a time machine back and use the better camera with a better zoom.

The glossy ibis is the most widespread ibis species. These birds are travelers and are found all over the world. Australia? New Zealand, Canada, England… Check their passport, they’ve been there.
