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.
