Beautiful White Ibis, images take at sunrise @ Bunche Beach, Fort Meyers, FL
An immature White Ibis
A baby White Ibis getting ready to fledge the nest.
The adult is unmistakable, being pure white with a bright red face and legs, and a long sickle-shaped bill. Common in Florida.
This Scarlett Ibis is not part of my project, (this is a photo I took @ the Palm Beach Zoo) but I wanted to include the image for diagnostic purposes. The Scarlett Ibis is closely related to the White Ibis of South America and is a vagrant that was subject of a failed introduction attempt to southern Florida in the 1960's.
