Saw the Ibis at Milford today and had a chance to study it critically 
compared to Glossy Ibis.  To me, it appeared a bit smaller than the Glossy, 
certainly had the red eye and pink face, showed a bit of red at the top of 
the leg, and showed a disticly purplish irridescence on the tertials and 
coverts, compared to greenish on Glossy.  Some photos are available at this
