5/15 Westport, Sherwood Is. S.P. - I saw the WHITE-FACED IBIS with 6 adult
Glossy Ibis at the same location about 3:30 pm. I obtained a couple
record-photos just before the rain got heavy. It has iridescent glossy
plumage, reddish legs, pinkish facial skin, and a reddish eye, but lacks any
distinct white around the face. I suspect it is a 1st-summer bird (born last
year). I'll try to post photos later.
Thanks for the call, Tina.
