White Ibis (Eudociumus Albus)
Ever have an itch you just couldn’t quite reach? This fellow kept trying — even hopping up and down in the water. It was quite a sight to see.
One of the most numerous wading birds here in Florida, the White Ibis is also found in great numbers throughout the southeast United States. Its most noticeable characteristics are the red face, long curving red bill, and beautiful blue eyes. Although the adult appears to be white all over, the tips of their wings are black and usually only visible in flight.
