Glossy Ibis

Glossy Ibis

The Glossy Ibis (Plegadis falcinellus) is a wading bird in the ibis family Threskiornithidae. The scientific name derives from Ancient Greek plegados and Latin, falcis, both meaning “sickle” and referring to the distinctive shape of the bill.

Breeding adults have iridescent bronze and red-brown overall with a thin band of white feathers around the bare dark blue face (non-breeding) and cobalt blue (breeding), , long, down-curved, brownish bill. Non-breeders and juveniles have duller bodies. Unlike herons, ibises fly with necks outstretched, their flight being graceful and often in V formation. [Wikipedia]

    You did a great job with this Ibis. They are so hard to photograph because in the wrong light they look monochromatic.
