In the American West, White-faced Ibis is most often associated with flooded fields and freshwater marshes and ponds. It is slightly larger heavier than Glossy Ibis; breeding adults are distinguished mainly by their white facial feathering, striking red eyes (also on non-breeding adults) and rosy loral skin. Most adults also show reddish legs, especially at the “knees”. Juveniles are indistinguishable from juveinle Glossy Ibises. Both dark Ibises have expanded there ranges in recent decades.
