White Ibis
(Eudocimus albus)
Photographed in the Everglades, Florida and Texas, by Jim Rosso, Karen Billings, and Don Schmoldt.
The picture on the right has a Snowy Egret on the right of the White Ibis. As I watched them it seemed that the Snowy Egret was purposely feeding around the Ibis so it could take advantage of the food that the Ibis stirred up with its feet and beak.

The birds on the left are in immature plumage.
